The DIY friendly medium sized Emecole Metro Slab Crack Repair Kit was engineered to fill cracks and spalled horizontal concrete surfaces, with basement floors and garage floors being the most common applications. This kit is packaged with the needed components, including our advanced concrete crack repair polyurethane and dispensing accessories, giving homeowners the confidence to successfully repair approximately 40 to 100 feet (based on a 1/4″ by 1/4″ chased crack) with the use of a standard caulking gun (not included).
Fill and Strengthen Cracks in Basement and Garage Floors
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.
