The Soakum Oakum Kit is composed of Soakum OakumTM (a dry oakum) soaked in a hydrophilic polymer solution. When wet and either packed or worked into a joint or crack, the resin will foam to form a flexible and tight joint to stop groundwater infiltration. It reacts with water and becomes a watertight rubber-like composite. The oakum cord gives strength and density to the composite and makes the application of the resin easier, especially when gushers are present.
