Took a good look at any concrete structure, and you’re bound to see a few cracks forming. While it is easy to lay the blame on materials or human error, the reality is that concrete is designed to crack. It’s inevitable, even when the utmost care was taken during construction.
When cracks do form in concrete, what options are there for remedying the issue?
When to use crack injection methods
Of course, a long-lasting solution for cracks is to replace the offending section of concrete. This, however, can take up considerable amounts of time and money, resources that are often in short supply.
If the repair work needs to be carried out on infrastructure that’s used frequently, the time taken for repairs is even more precious. A lengthy process would cause a near-unacceptable number of disruptions to the people or businesses that use the project. Structures such as bridges and carparks, for example, are often used on a daily basis – shutting them down for extensive repairs would be a logistical nightmare.
Though a larger network of cracks may require a full replacement of concrete, smaller cracks in fewer numbers can be easily and conveniently repaired through crack injection.
