We specializes in structural repair using polyurethane and epoxy injection. The structural restoration of concrete with polyurethane epoxy injection is very often the only alternative to complete concrete replacement.
Cracks in Structural Members
When cracks form in concrete, it is a sign of failure caused by stress, inadequate design, or improper curing of the concrete during construction. One of the dangers of a structural crack is that it can expose the reinforcing bar inside. The reinforcing bar, or rebar, represents one of the main structural components of any concrete structure. Cracks that are not repaired allow moisture, salt, and other contaminants to penetrate into the concrete and attack the rebar. The rebar then oxidizes or deteriorates, losing its structural integrity. If left unchecked, the loss of the entire structure could be the result. Our epoxy injection solutions protect the rebar, stop water leakage, and can be used as a technique for “welding” cracks in the concrete back together. This method often epoxy crack repair, epoxy injection the concrete structure to its original strength and load design specifications. By using this injection method, an impervious seal to air, water, chemicals, debris, and other contaminants is formed. Under most conditions, epoxy injection treatments make the concrete as good as new.
