REPAIRING CONCRETE STRUCTURES
The need for crack repair in concrete structures can be caused by many different factors. Damage can occur to the concrete in situations where direct impact puts stress on one area of the structure.
- Freeze / thaw cycles
- Mechanical overload
- Improper pouring during installation
- Damage during transport of prefabricated sections
- Faulty foundations
- Standing water due to improper drainage adding unsafe weight to the concrete structure
Structural crack repair can be accomplished by pressure injection of our Prime Rez series of epoxy injection resins. There are many ways to accomplish this, but the basics are consistent.
For cracks that are extremely tight (less than 1/32″) or subject to shock and vibration, use our Prime Rez 1200 Low Mod LV. If you have to have the absolute highest strength, use our Prime Rez 1000 High Mod. To fill wide cracks, voids and honeycombs in concrete, use Prime Rez 1400 Void Filler. Finally, for wide cracks over 1/4” use our Prime Rez 1600 Injection Gel.
Sometimes our Prime Rez series resins can be gravity fed into cracks in horizontal surfaces. The cracks can be routed out to provide a reservoir for the epoxy resin. Use Prime Rez 1100 High Mod LV for most cracks. Use Prime Rez 1200 Low Mod LV for hairline cracks.
