A brief guide to concrete crack resin injection services in the UK

It’s common for concrete buildings and structures to need revisiting and repairing – especially as they grow older or if they are subjected to chemical attacks or weathering. Concrete crack resin injection applications are the method of choice for repairing almost any building or structure. It’s also an environmentally-friendly solution for concrete slabs, columns, and walls. This brief guide explains the pros and cons of using concrete crack resin injection for repairs, and upon the unlikely occasion that concrete injection is unsuitable, we recommend great alternatives. It’s important to address concrete cracks urgently otherwise they’ll lead to further damage. If you’d like to know more, get in touch with our specialist team on 01482 425250. We’re always happy to answer your questions!

What is concrete crack resin injection?

Concrete crack resin injection, also known as concrete injection, crack injection, or resin injection – is an effective and popular method used to repair concrete buildings and structures. As the name suggests, crack injection involves injecting a fluid resin directly into concrete cracks, voids, holes, chips, and other foundational damages. Crack injection services are completed by an experienced and fully-trained concrete repairs specialist. Your specialist will inject the flowable epoxy resin horizontally until the crack is completely filled. This takes a few minutes, but narrow cracks require longer because the pressure needs to be increased slowly and delicately.

At CCUK, we offer the following types of concrete crack injection:

  • Resin injection systems – for structural repairs
  • Chemical systems – for the rehabilitation of structures following a chemical attack
  • Flexible systems – for other concrete crack repairs

We use Sika Concrete Crack Repair Products.

Now you know the basics of concrete crack injection as a service, let’s look at the pros and cons of using it as a concrete repair method.

The cons of concrete injection

  • Extra care needs to be considered and taken for narrow cracks

  • Unsuitable if crack injection has already been tried and failed
