Tips for Epoxy Resin Injection

One strategy to regain structural integrity of cracked concrete is to inject the cracks with epoxy. This article provides some tips on how to properly perform this repair procedure. One of the most important steps is the application of a seal, where a viscous epoxy is applied over the mouth of a crack so that resin can be injected under pressure into the crack through a series of ports. Guidelines are provided for packing the seal, routing the crack, applying a scrub coat, using insertion ports, testing for leaks, using a hydrant, using high injection pressures, installing master points, using manifolds and taking cores for quality control.
