Caulking compounds and sealants are used to seal cracks in buildings in order to prevent the joints from water penetration which can be a result of joint failure. Above-grade waterproofing with caulking and sealants is a structure’s first line of defense against the elements. Caulking and Sealant products used are specifically selected for material and the type of protection which is needed.
Over time, building movement and the effects of weather will cause caulking and sealants to deteriorate and lose its bond within the joints. In addition to the loss of a moisture barrier, a building also loses thermal and noise insulation. Epoxy injection is a bonding process used to repair a wide variety of concrete and masonry structures.
The material not only fills cracks, but welds them together structurally by using an epoxy that is forced through the crack under pressure. This forms a bond that is stronger than the concrete itself.
Damage to the building's interior and loss of energy are inevitable.The infiltration of water often leads to cracks that allow for building deterioration; insects as well may enter into the building interior.
