Concrete in Alaska has to deal with intense freezing and thawing cycles. Our qualified team of epoxy experts will repair your concrete with the best product on the market. A method of injecting cracks and fissures in concrete, masonry, wood and steel with a high strength epoxy resin adhesive to restore it to its original condition. Fractured concrete can be restored without a loss of strength to the structure.

When there is a crack in your concrete, sometimes it is not just a surface problem.  Some cracks can indicate an issue with structural stability of the concrete. When this is the case, it is very important to find a professional well-schooled in the application of epoxy pressure injection.  The epoxy pressure injection system is by far the best way to ‘heal‘ your concrete and seal those cracks for good.

Why Concrete Cracks

  • Shrinkage during curing or before the development process has completed
  • Static or dynamic mechanical overload
  • Changes in temperature to structures with no allowance for expansion
  • Base foundation movement

Uses and Benefits

  • Structural Reinforcement
  • Seals Cracks & Leaks: Complete distribution fills any holes or voids
  • Prevents Concrete Spalling: Due to cracking and freezing/thawing temps
  • Prevents Corrosion: From water and chemicals
  • Architecture & Design: Reduces unsightly surface marks common with standard repair techniques

The main advantage of epoxies is that they have very impressive compressive strength, 12,000 pounds per square inch or more, which is actually stronger than concrete. This means that the epoxy is stronger and more durable than the concrete it adheres to so our clients can rest assured that there will be no leaks and that the crack will set properly. One seeming disadvantage of epoxy pressure injections is that it can take a while to set compared to other composites. However, this is actually one of the key properties of epoxy as during the time of setting it seeps its way into every part of the damaged concrete to guarantee an air tight seal.
