EPOXY INJECTION: FLOOR SLAB REPAIR

Epoxy injection has been successfully used in the repair of cracks in buildings, bridges, dams, and other types of concrete structures. High strength epoxy adhesives are commonly used to seal, bond, and reestablish the strength and integrity of the distressed slab.

This method is typically used for cracks that are less than ¼" in width with no vertical offset. 

 EPOXY REPAIR PROCESS


The epoxy bonds the two sides of cracked slab together and the surface is ground smooth after the epoxy cures. This method is applicable for minor cracks in slab.
