Simpson Strong-Tie is a leader in both engineered structural connectors and building solutions. Recently, the company launched a complete line of structural epoxy products designed for a variety of concrete crack repair jobs. Tested to the latest ASTM standards, the new CI family of crack injection epoxies have an improved viscosity range. They have accelerated cure times. Additionally, you can install them at temperatures between 40°F and 110°F to meet the demands of real-world concrete repair applications.
Simpson Strong-Tie has also upgraded its entire suite of dispensing tools and injection systems. These upgrades help make applications fast, easy, and clean for contractors on the move. From hairline cracks to wider concrete fractures, Simpson Strong-Tile designed crack injection repair products for both cartridge and pump applications. These options will suit a variety of jobs of all sizes, from the smallest to the largest, and everything in between. Simpson Strong-Tie formulated the products included in the collection for retrofit and repair work in light-frame, tilt-wall, water treatment, bridge and marine, and commercial construction and restoration.
“Although predominantly used for retrofit and repair work, you can use this upgraded collection of concrete injection epoxy products and accessories in new construction as well,” says Simpson Strong-Tie director of Concrete Construction Products, Ryan Kaelin. “The availability of products in cartridges suits small- to medium-sized jobs where it’s not efficient to set up pneumatic pumps. All of our crack injection solutions have the backing of Simpson Strong-Tie training, jobsite support, and nationwide availability. If you’ve got cracks, we’ve got you covered.”
