Crack Injection Techniques are used for concrete crack repair and to stop active water leaks.
It is important to repair cracks promptly because the ingress of water into the cracks will eventually cause the internal steel reinforcement to rust and expand during the oxidisation process. As the imbedded steel expands the surrounding concrete will be compromised and concrete spalling (concrete cancer) will occur.
Hairline cracks or larger cracks will allow moisture into the concrete and enable this spalling to occur.
Concrete crack injection is quick, effective and relatively inexpensive. By comparison, concrete spalling/cancer can be structurally damaging and very costly to repair. So it is essential to act quickly!
Crack Injection is carried out by the following process and can be carried out with a minimum of disruption.
