Fast Cure Concrete Concrete Crack Repair
SCT-22™ is a two component fast-setting urethane injection material to fill spalls, cracks, and pits. It is 100% solids with ultra-low viscosity keeping your project on time.
Epoxy Concrete Crack Filler
SCT-EP™ is a conventional static crack filler. The 2-part epoxy with the addition of sand is the most economical system. Dry time is longer than urethane treatments.
Before a nice, clean overlay or coating can be applied to your concrete slab, you’ll need to treat any cracks in the substrate. While no crack can be completely “fixed”, we’ll provide you the tools you need to make sure they are repaired for years to come and don’t shadow through to your surface layer for a very long time.
While some cracks may need to be “cut out” to allow the concrete surface to move and shift more freely, most can be treated with either an epoxy or urethane crack treatment product, depending on the size and depth of the void. For smaller cracks, we suggest our SCT-22 Urethane crack treatment product. For larger voids, we prefer our Epoxy Crack Treatment product in conjunction with some filler product such as sand.
At SureCrete we take great pride in ensuring that your concrete projects last as long as they possibly can, and to that end, we’ve specially formulated our crack repair products to last as long as your decorative overlays will.
What is the purpose of concrete crack treatments?
Cracks in the concrete are always an eye soar. Identifying what type of break you will determine the correct products to treat it and minimize its recurrence. In this instance, we are not talking about control joints, only cracks that happen in-between control joints. The two types of cracks are active or static. Static breaks are no longer moving. In many cases, they may be viewed as hairline cracks but can be as wide as 1/2 inch. Active cracks can start as a hairline, but continue to widen as the slab is now two pieces of concrete separating farther from each other.
There are no treatments available to stop an “active” crack. The reason for this is due to the mass of each slab bearing too much on a thin material to keep it together. No longer active breaks, static, and hairline cracks can be treated in most cases. Depending on some linear feet and time to complete the process the user can use a cement, urethane, or an epoxy cracks treatment.
