Sealing of silage clamps in JGS plants (animal faeces, slurry, manure, silage juice) with AgrarElast
What does this product have to offer?
AgrarElast is used to seal storage and filling facilities with substances generally hazardous to water. Due to new legal environmental regulations, especially the regulation AwSV (Ordinance on Installations for the Handling of Substances Hazardous to Water, effective since August 1st, 2017), silage clamps must be specially sealed.
For the renovation and new construction of facilities for the storage and filling of liquid manure, slurry and silage leachate (JGS) – mobile silos, fermentation feed silos and solid manure plates – as well as biogas plants, only construction products may be used that have the corresponding building authority approvals.
In order to meet the high requirements for the permanent sealing of JGS plants, the joint sealant AgrarElast is subject to regular product monitoring and material testing. In addition, AgrarElast is a joint sealing system approved by the DIBt building authorities (Z-74.62-176).
The newly developed product from BT innovation can thus be reliably used for sealing joints in JGS and biogas plants. AgrarElast is a sealant for sealing microbiologically and acid contaminated joints, for areas with composting and fermentation processes. The system can be used to seal silos, warehouses, concrete solid manure slabs and asphalt. The system is suitable for movement joints and is characterised by high temperature resistance.
The AgrarElast joint sealing system consists of the AgrarElast joint sealant and the primers A(sphalt) for asphalt and B(eton) for concrete. Primer A is suitable for asphalt, asphalt concrete and bitumen. This product is a set consisting of components A+B.
Primer B is suitable for concrete, metal and glass, among others.

Instructions for professional waterproofing
* measured at 23°C and 50 % rel. Humidity
Primer A(sphalt) is a 2-component epoxy primer for the pre-treatment of bituminous substrates when joint sealing with AgrarElast. As a pre-treatment agent for asphalt surfaces, it is a component of the approved AgrarElast waterproofing system (approval Z 74.62-176).
Primer B(eton) is a 1-component primer for the pre-treatment of various substrates when using the sealant AgrarElast. As a pre-treatment agent for concrete surfaces, it is a component of the approved AgrarElast joint sealing system (approval Z 74.62-176).
Observe the hazard and safety information on the safety data sheets of the AgrarElast and the primers.

BT sealing products
In addition to the AgrarElast, BT innovation has a wide range of products for durable Joint sealing of precast concrete and in-situ concrete components in agriculture or against pressurised water. Only some of the work on JGS and biogas plants requires construction products with DIBt approval.
AgrarElast: joint sealant for JGS and biogas plants approved by DIBt since June 2019.
Agrar-SynkoElast finds application in the sealing of storage and filling facilities with substances generally hazardous to water, such as e.g. JGS and biogas plants, slurry tanks, mobile silos, fermentation feed silos, waste water plants. Agrar-SynkoElast is a joint sealing system approved by the DIBt building authorities (Z-74.51-184).
InnoElast® Type 2: tested joint sealant for joints between concrete components, with which subsequent sealing is possible up to a water depth of 4.8 .
