The Emecole Metro Small-Sized Slab Crack Repair Kit is intended for repairing cracked or spalled horizontal concrete surfaces, with the most common applications being basement floors and garage floors. The small-sized kit comes with all the components to complete the job, including our advanced Emecole Metro 555 Concrete Crack Repair Hybrid Polyurethane and the necessary dispensing accessories to repair up to approximately 40 to 100 feet based on a 1/4″ x 1/4″ chased crack. Repairs can be completed with a standard caulk gun.
Fill and Strengthen Basement and Garage Floor Cracks
As a very low viscosity water-like polyurethane material, Emecole Metro 555 has the capabilities of penetrating deep into cracks. Emecole Metro 555 may also be used with Filler Sand (pure, wash and dried silica sand – may be purchased with kit), which allows for the application to use less material, while also strengthening the overall repair. The high bonding strength of Emecole Metro 555 fuses concrete back together, providing a strong crack repair that is completely filled from top to bottom with a cured tensile strength of 4000 PSI.
The fast cure time of Emecole Metro 555 Concrete Crack Repair Hybrid Polyurethane minimizes downtime since the repaired area can be put back into service within 60 minutes of use. The repaired surface also allows for same day overlays.
The filling and repair of cracks in garage and basement and garage floors is a proactive measure to help stop against the entry of water (though additional drain tile measures may be needed for complete waterproofing peace of mind) and soil gases, such as radon. By minimizing the entry of water and soil gases, homeowners are taking an important proactive measure towards the growth of mold, musty smells and other issues associated with poor air quality. With at least half of the air circulating throughout the home having originated from below-grade, maintaining a dry and healthy basement is a critical step towards a healthier whole home environment.
