Loresco PermaPlug provides
the cathodic protection industry with a method to plug and seal
earth holes. PermaPlug is environmentally safe and when properly
installed, prevents the contamination of underground aquifers from
PermaPlug produces a permanent non-porous molding-clay seal.
Manufactured from naturally occurring Bentonite, PermaPlug
contains no additional chemicals. Installation is easy requiring
no tools or pumps. Simply open the bag and pour.
PermaPlug prevents the deterioration of underground water
quality and is environmentally accepted for use in the vacinity
of potable drinking water.

When installing PermaPlug above carbon backfill, insure complete
backfill settling before beginning PermaPlug installation.
- Condition the earth hole area to be sealed by flushing
with clean water or by allowing any drilling fluids to sufficiently
thin by overnight settling. The fluid within the earth hole
should allow the PermaPlug particles to sink readily.
- Pour PermaPlug slowly into earth.
- Install one 50 lb. bag of PermaPlug every 3 to 4 minutes
until the desired level is obtained.
Once in place, PermaPlug will expand to seal the earth hole.
PermaPlug is shipped on stretch wrapped pallets. Each pallet
contains 3,150 lbs. of PermaPlug. material should not be handled
roughly before installation-fracturing of particles will occur.
PermaPlug is shipped in water-resistant bags, but must be stored
out of the weather due to moisture sensitivity.
PermaPlug will completely seal earth holes when applied properly.
It is strongly advised to utilize a vent pipe for the release
of gases and as a facility for water addition if needed. The
AllVent breather pipe is recommended. Specifically manufactured
for deep cathodic protection systems, AllVent stays open and
does not plug with backfill.
