Application - Repair and rebuild cracks and broken concrete in the foundation.
Industry - General Industry: Residential
Contractor – Technical Consulting done by John Alexander
Problem - Sections of the foundation have been cracking and breaking away from the foundation causing safety issues as well as foundation damage.
Solution - Prepared the area by removing concrete and debris. Applied Belzona 4911 to the cracks and corner to condition the surface. Used Belzona 4141 to make repairs. Finished the surface with Stucco to match the rest of the foundation.
Product Applied - Belzona 4911 Conditioner and Belzona 4141 (Magma-Build)
Product Detail – Belzona 4911 and Belzona 4141 is a lightweight epoxy repair composite for rebuilding damaged vertical and overhead concrete and masonry surfaces. This high-build concrete repair material can be applied up to 12.7 cm (5 inches) thick on vertical surfaces and up to 7.6 cm (3 inches) thick on overhead surfaces without the use of shuttering during cure and only minimal support during the application.
This solvent free epoxy repair composite is non-porous and does not absorb water or chemicals. It provides excellent carbonation resistance and withstands extreme weather conditions.
Generally, concrete must be left to cure for a minimum of 28 days. Belzona 4141 (Magma-Build) in comparison will achieve a full mechanical cure at 25°C (77°F) within 12 hours, and full chemical cure in 3 days.
