The typical staple is 10″ long by. The steel surface should be dry and free from contamination. Countersunk Staple The first commercially available concrete crack control stitching system designed to transfer load away from repair materials. When applied on either ends of the repair, it deprives corrosion from any point of entry.
It is versatile and can be installed on various geometries such as tees or elbows that require structural reinforcement or leak containment. Concrete wall crack injection repair became less expensive with the introduction of dual cartridge tube sets, dual dispensing guns, etc. With the Fortec Carbon Fiber Countersunk Staples installed you can be confident the concrete crack will not reoccur at the injection site and the repair will last the life of your home.
Can be applied underwater or in any weather conditions.

A peel-ply fabric is adhered to the reppair when removed, it leaves a prepared bonding surface for adhesion to a prepared substrate.
Various types of epoxy and fiberglass materials have been designed to suit the needs of our clients and to offer solutions to different technical situations.
Poured repiar companies would pull a guy off a crew when they were slow and send them out for warranty repairs. This is a partial answer to composite capabilities to keep up performance with time.
Everyone with a pulse began shooting concrete cracks with some kind of sealant. Top Coat Various top coats are available: The repsir are encapsulated in a thermal set resin and cured under pressure during manufacturing process. We also use aramid reinforcement as well as coloured threads for overlapping guidelines, which contribute to the reliability and reproducibility of the system performance.
By cross-stitching concrete crack repair with staples this creep is eliminated and improves the long term performance of the repair material.
This prevents fatigue and re-cracking of the rrpair glue line. It is the long-term creep and fatigue of material injected in concrete cracks with the movement of the foundation that can fail over time. It is user friendly with a 1: The Staples are comprised of high tensile strength and modulus carbon fiber.
Very few concrete crack repairs fail immediately. Find a contractor today that does not offer a warranty, but are they still in business 2 or 3 years later when the repair fails.
Abrasive blast cleaning to SA 2.
Surface preparation The steel surface should be dry and free from contamination. Fortec Stabilization Systems Countersunk Staples are the first commercially available concrete crack control stitching system designed to transfer load away from repair materials.
It shows not only higher adhesion strength but also longer bonding performance. It is repar from a bidirectional weave of glass or carbon fiber reinforcing a proprietary solvent free epoxy, forming a composite system with exceptional performance.
When Fortec Carbon Fiber Countersunk Staples are applied across the face of the concrete crack, the load is distributed away from the glue line to the portion of the substrate that is not cracked. It is economicaluser-friendlyquick to install even in the most severe climatic conditions. However; it also became too easy. Its bidirectional weave provides strength to both hoop and axial directions.
