Concrete Cracks And Masonary Cracks As Found In Commercial Structures And Basements
Tunnels, basements, parking garages, dams, you name it, all concrete structures will show cracks on closer inspection . Cracks are created by drying shrinkage, thermal and stress movement, and other causes.
If minor, they will cause no immediate problems. But over time, minor cracks often grow larger and cause major headaches, including reduced structural integrity or water leakage.
Even if a crack is not leaking now, eventually water might find a way through it. Further deterioration will occur. To stop leaksand protect concrete structures, we supply commercial grade epoxies, polyurethane resins and foams and polyurea products for all types of concrete crack repairs.
Crack injection has been performed for many years. and in many cases, crack injection will fix the problem. The injection procedure will permit to fill the crack in full, from front to back, with epoxy or polyurethane. Injection has shown to be effective for filling cracks from 0.001 to 2 inches wide. It can also be used to fill cracks in concrete floors and ceilings.
