Description

Repair basement wall cracks in need of structural strength. Using the proven crack injection process, this fully equipped kit includes the components needed to repair approximately 30 feet of cracks up to a 1/4″ wide in poured concrete. No special skills are required – simply follow the step-by-step instructions (refer to the written and video instructions further below).

This kit features Emecole Metro 121 Premium Fast Curing Epoxy, our most advanced epoxy that we have been manufacturing and supplying for over 30 years. Upon injection, Emecole Metro 121 Premium fuses cracks together, making repairs stronger than the original concrete. By filling the depth of the crack, this also provides a waterproofing solution that stops cracks from leaking water.

The development of structural cracks form as a result of movement (i.e. settlement, soil pressure, freeze/thaw cycles) against the foundation, which causes stress. The resulting cracks are usually diagonal, horizontal, jagged, or stair-stepped. In addition to allowing in water, these cracks may widen over time, which may eventually compromise the structural integrity of the foundation.

The strong bonding characteristics of Emecole Metro 121 Premium makes it the preferred injection option for repairing structural cracks. Its overall strength ensures it won’t deteriorate over time. In addition, cracks are filled from front-to-back and bottom-to-top. The end result is a strong and watertight repair that helps maintain a dry and healthy basement environment.

Frequently Asked Questions

If the basement wall crack is high enough to raise above grade, does the exterior of the crack need to be covered from the outside?

Yes, any cracks that are exposed on the outside because they are above grade will need to be covered with your included Emecole Metro Surface Seal, otherwise, the injected polyurethane will leak out, potentially compromising the repair in addition to also wasting material.

A repair to my basement wall crack was previously attempted with the use of hydraulic cement and has since started to leak water again. Can your product still be used to rectify the previous repair attempt?

Yes. The use of this kit requires access to the crack, so a few extra steps will be necessary. The hydraulic cement should be removed by chipping and grinding in order to gain access to the crack. There are some scenarios where such scenarios is more complicated. For such situations, we advise you get in touch with an Emecole Metro technical support expert for additional ideas.

Can this product be used in the middle of winter or when the temperature outside is below freezing? What is the coldest (or warmest) temperature your product will work in?

The ideal temperature for the use of the materials packaged in this kit is between 40 and 100 degrees Fahrenheit. Assuming that the basement is heated, any outside temperature should not impact the performance of the chemicals during the basement crack repair process.
