Strong, resilient and versatile, concrete is an excellent building material. Easily one of the most used building materials in Napa, concrete can be reinforced to make it even stronger. The only drawback to concrete is since it is an incredibly solid building material, it is rigid and lacks flexibility after it hardens. This issue is small when compared to all the benefits, but it does mean that concrete can crack over time and under certain conditions.
Luckily, when cracks occur Ironcat Concrete can repair them and make them stronger than ever. We use specialized epoxy injection technology that gets into every nook and cranny, eliminating the need for expensive replacements.
Epoxy Injections for superior concrete repairs
When it comes to repairing cracks, especially for structural repair, epoxy is essential. This is because:
Epoxy is stronger than concrete – Concrete is under a great deal of pressure as it is often the primary component that allows a structure to stay standing over time. This means that repairs must make the site stronger, to ensure the safety and longevity of the building. Most Epoxies used can handle 12, 000 pounds per square inch or more, repairing the crack completely.
Epoxy completely fills the crack – Epoxy takes a few hours to harden into its final state but this apparent drawback is actually one of its key features. Since the epoxy takes time to cure it is allowed to fill in all of the small fissures within the crack, creating a superior seal.
