Best drilling chemicals
The QSE sealing material is of high quality, made of clay in the form of cylinders with a diameter of 6 mm or 8 mm and a length of 5-12 mm. When QSE cylinders come into contact with water, they swell, increasing their volume, leading to the formation of a homogeneous plastic mass used as a sealing material. It is assumed that from 1 kg of QSE, approximately 1 liter of sealant is obtained.
There are numerous possibilities for using QSE cylinders, provided that there is sufficient water available and no obstacles to placing them where sealing is desired. The cylinders are used wherever a plastic seal with a very low permeability coefficient (~10-8 m/s) is required. The product is suitable for cutting off aquifer layers in well holes as well as for various engineering works. Once maximum swelling is achieved, the material remains plastic and “cooperates” with the surrounding layers. However, it should be remembered that in this case, there is no permanent binding process. The resulting seal, when exposed to direct atmospheric conditions, will tend to gradually release water and shrink, but will regain its properties upon contact with water again.
QSE cylinders are available in 25 kg plastic bags (40 bags per pallet) or in so-called Big Bags (1000 kg).
NOTE After opening the bag, due to its high hygroscopicity, the material should be stored in a dry place.
