What Is Crack Injection?
Crack injection refers to the process of forcing a fluid epoxy resin into a void or crack in a foundation wall. Upon curing it provides a strong and watertight seal.
How Is Crack Injection Done?
Crack injection is a relatively easy process. The crack is first cleaned of any loose debris, and fitted with injection tubes. The surface of the crack is then sealed up leaving only the tubes exposed. Epoxy resin is then forced through each of the tubes to seal the concrete crack all the way through. Once the injection is completed you will be left with a solid, waterproof repair.
