Concrete cracks are a common complaint among homeowners. Many things can lead to a concrete crack such as shrinkage, thermal contraction, settlement, and applied pressure. These cracks can lead to further structural damage and can be quite annoying for homeowners.

Before choosing a crack injection solution, it’s important to consider the following:

⦁ Crack width/depth
⦁ Is your crack dormant or active?
⦁ Are you sealing cracks for aesthetics?
⦁ Is there high pressure to be sealed?

FINDING THE CAUSE OF CRACKS

In order to effectively seal a crack, you need to find the root cause. This will help fix any cracking issues and ensure to protect your property from long term damage.

There are many different causes of cracking. Typically it’s due issues of moisture or soil.

A settlement crack is a bit more tricky. Settlement cracks are typically caused by a lack of moisture or improper laying over steel.

A structural crack found in residential properties is normally linked to loading pressure. You’re more likely to find them on walls in the basement. The blame is commonly thrown at the water in the soil. These cracks are often formed diagonally

Dormant Cracks vs Active Cracks

Dormant cracks are typically found on basement walls. These cracks contain stable widths and are usually sealed using a cement solution.

Active cracks are those still moving. A sealant is an optimal solution for active cracks. If you have any active cracks, they should be tended to right away.

Crack Injection

Cracks are typically fixed with Polyurethane or epoxy resin. Epoxy resin is a popular choice to seal dormant cracks because it can penetrate cracks less than 0.1mm. Here are the major benefits of using Epoxy resin:

⦁ Strong Adhesion
⦁ Versatile applications for most surfaces
⦁ Great mechanical strength
⦁ Resistant to many chemicals

You can also seal wider cracks using epoxy resin. It’s surprisingly simple to use (hence why it’s so popular). Epoxy resin is injected with high amounts of pressure. Injection points run along the surface of the crack which then seals it.

Polyurethane is also a great choice, however, it doesn’t have the same bond strength as epoxy resin. They are, however, the best choice for active cracks that are still moving. They can follow the crack’s movement and seal it efficiently.
