Why did mud jacking become in demand? This technique allows not only to relieve the concrete floor from cracks, but also to provide waterproofing of the basement or tunnel. Polymer mixtures are used for filling cracks in block foundations, concrete piles. When ordering mud jacking of screed or other concrete surface from specialists on and ordering implementation of these services, you will receive advice on the choice of material on this website. The choice of polymer composition depends on the purpose of the room, type of surface, size and location of defects.

It is advisable to use resins for concrete repair only with small cracks. Resins quickly fill microscopic pores. When the resin hardens, strength and bearing capacity of concrete are fully restored.

Polyurethane resin is a two-component mixture. It consists of a base and a hardener. The substance acquire its properties only by mixing the two components. Mixing can be done in advance or carried out in an injection pump before starting the procedure.

The substance provides additional waterproofing of the surface. Often, polyurethane resin is used in the treatment of wet cracks in basements, tunnels, underground parking lots. Polyurethane resin is also able to stop the pressureless or pressure flow of water during the waterproofing of underground utilities.

Using epoxy resin, inject joints and cracks with a dry surface. The substance penetrates well into microscopic pores, has high adhesion and quickly hardens.

Epoxy resin has chemical resistance, it almost does not react with other substances. But it swells upon contact with water, the volume increases by 2-3 times. Knowing this property, you can use epoxy resin to create a waterproofing layer.
