Concrete cracks occur because of poor drainage, settling soil or sideways expansion. Cracks in your concrete floor can not only be unsightly, but they can also worsen if left untreated. Thankfully, we here at C-TEC are here to help. We have a range of great sealants and adhesives suited for repairing cracks in concrete slabs and floors.
Filling in hairline cracks with CT1
Before going in with your all-powerful sealant, it’s time to give the area a good cleaning. You will need to free the floor from debris and wash the area before applying the filler. CT1 acts as an adhesive, sealant and filler all in one. This powerful formulation is suitable for a massive range of applications. Once you’re done fixing your concrete slabs, you can tackle other problems areas inside and outside the house. This includes bathroom repairs, general building maintenance and repairing leaks etc.
CT1 replaces the need for silicone sealants, acrylic sealants, P.U adhesives and wood adhesives. It is an all-powerful sealant that bonds to the majority of surfaces, even those often considered the most difficult to seal such as glass, metal, PVC, wood and tiles etc. One of its greatest advantages is the fact that it will not only create a very strong bond, but it does so without attacking synthetic material. Its thin nozzle makes it perfect for repairing concrete slab cracks, simply point the nozzle at the problem area and apply the sealant as needed.
Waterproofing concrete floors
If you would like to not only fill in the cracks of your concrete floor, but also waterproof the entire area at the same time, then your best option is WT1. This revolutionary product waterproofs concrete floors to prevent cracks from appearing. This added layer of protection ensures that cracks do not emerge over time and it also helps to lock out excess moisture from entering the surface of the concrete. After all, excess moisture and water is the number one cause of cracks developing in concrete slabs. The water seeps into the cracks and if it freezes, the ice expands. This puts pressure on the surrounding materials, which results in a crack emerging on the surface.
Sealing your cracks with a waterproof sealant such as WT1 ensures that no further damage occurs on the surface of the concrete. Both CT1 and WT1 can be used in conjunction with our other products such as Multisolve, which is used to prep and clean surface areas. It removes old sealant and adhesives, which is often necessary before applying a fresh new coat of sealant. Simply spray the solution onto the old sealant and watch as it safely pries itself apart from the base material.
