THE EFFICIENT WAY TO SEAL CRACKS WITH EPOXY INJECTION
In homes across Oshawa, over time, foundation cracks may appear around the perimeter of the basement or may even penetrate the membrane – leading to leaky floors and wet basements. To avoid the ground water entering the basement, it is recommended to seal foundation cracks.
When a crack is under tension it opens up; therefore, a material that cannot withstand the tension will tear. Epoxy is the best material to use when a crack is under tension; however, a reinforced polyurethane crack injection will work just as well.
The low-pressure injection method used for an epoxy injection provides visual confirmation to the injection technician that the crack has been completely filled. The curing time allows the epoxy to gravity feed within the crack, thereby filling all parts of even the finest cracks. Epoxies can be used to fill very fine to very wide cracks. It is also possible to obtain very low viscosities for epoxy on-the-job in order to properly fill very fine hairline cracks.
The significant advantage of Epoxy Injection
In terms of epoxy crack injection, arguably its most significant advantage, polyurethane can be used regardless of the condition of the crack and the weather. It doesn’t matter if the crack is actively leaking, full of mud and/or mineral deposits, or if it is fine or wide. Polyurethane injection can involve a crack flushing process to clean out the crack prior to injection.
Occasionally, high injection pressures are required to fill cracks that are very fine and/or when concrete is completely saturated with water and therefore weak. Like the epoxy crack injection, the low-pressure polyurethane crack injection provides the injection technician with positive confirmation that the crack has been filled completely.
