Tensile/inward: due to lateral loading
Outward: due to shrinkage of soils
Opening: due to thermal changes
Closing: due to thermal changes, i.e. cold, wet, dry, etc.
Shear: due to differential loading
Combination: all of the above conditions, plus the added load of the structure
When a fracture is caused by differential loading (shear), the fix is considered structural. The staples in this case are crisscrossed at 30-degree angles that will load the carbon in tension, allowing function in shear. The result is not only a fracture fix, but restoration of the structural integrity of the wall.
When carbon-fiber sheet staples are anchored into the cement, fewer loads are exerted on the weak surface substrate and transferred into actual cement. This improves its entire inter-workings with the material of choice.
Concrete crack repair and stopping shifting walls with carbon-fiber is a proven application and technology that works as well in your home as in commercial buildings, bridges, mines, road surfaces and in any other applications where reinforcement and reparation are needed.
Concrete crack repair is something that all homeowners, construction workers, safety personnel and others will have to deal with at some point in time. The simple fact is that all cement structures will crack.
Foundations and other cement structures will often crack as a result of settling, soil pressure, water damage, drying shrinkage, thermal movement or other causes. As most homeowners know, basement wall fractures are common and a fact-of-life. Most fractures are minor and cause few problems. However, other fractures can grow over time and cause structural integrity or, more commonly, water leakage. If the fracture is large or growing over time, simple injection techniques are not an appropriate or lasting fix. Under these circumstances, appropriate needs to stabilize the fracture, i.e., prevent it from expanding and getting larger. To accomplish this, reinforcement and stabilization is required.
Concrete crack repair employing the Carbon Fiber Countersunk Staples are designed to transfer load away from the fracture, thus creating a long-lasting fix.
