Newton’s product portfolio is expanding to include a comprehensive range of injection resins, suitable for the remedial repair of cracks in concrete that can lead to water ingress.
Injection resins are suitable for application in basements, underground parking, tunnel projects, wall/floor transitions, concrete slabs, bridges, construction sites and lift pits.
Mechanical, chemical and climatic loads can create stresses in concrete, as the tensile load that concrete can withstand is only between 2-10% of its compressive strength.
There are many ways in which cracks in concrete can be caused, such as incorrect design calculations, unforeseen loads, incorrect steel placement, shrinkage and excess heat generation. Newton’s new range of injection resins offer a remedial repair solution, as they can be utilised to close cracks and voids to prevent any substance penetration, to seal from any leaks, to flexibly seal across crack flanks and to reinstate structural integrity between the sides of cracks and voids.
