When joints are unfilled they are susceptible to spalling and chipping away. If ignored this problem can worsen and over time development into serious safety and production issues. Control joint repair is often attempted by filling with epoxy so forklifts are trying to pass over the pot holes, but this ‘quick-fix’ many times fails and plant managers are left with the nuisance of constant repair, lost and damaged products, and safety issues.

A professional company with proper repair techniques and access to industrial strength products will be able to rebuild damaged joints so they are like-new again.

The 6-step joint repair process (shown in detail here), requires to cut square and deep (no more than an inch unless the bottom exceeds one inch) patches out of the concrete. Then prime and prep the clean and fresh concrete. A bonding agent is used in this process to increase the bond of the patch by penetrating the concrete and acting like teeth holding it in place. Then the repair mixture is prepared and placed in the patch and overfilled slightly. The control joint repair product is a high strength, reactive resin mortar and cures to nearly 13,000 psi (stronger than concrete). Once cured, it is ground flush with the adjacent surface to achieve a seamless patch that is locked into the concrete. Finally, the original joint line is honored and filled with a semi-rigid material that won’t budge under forklift traffic.
