Use of epoxies to knit concrete structures that have developed structural cracks has been adopted as a regular practice by the Santa Fe. Cracks in concrete supporting structures have been a concern for some time. Cracks in bearing areas have the potential for creating serious problems. Epoxy offers a method for restoration short of recasting. The repairs can be carried out with the need for slow orders or disrupting train traffic. Structural integrity is achieved at a fraction of the cost of alternative repair methods.
