Areo performs epoxy or polyurethane injection when concrete cracks, becomes porous or is affected by water. Injection ensures that the concrete structure is dense, strong and resistant again.
Save time and money by injecting
Concrete structures and screeds are continuously exposed to different types of loads. This can lead to cracking. If the cracks are not repaired in time, they can cause permanent damage. Areo is experiencing a growing demand for injection because injecting rather than replacing the entire concrete structure saves time and money. It is possible to restore the original strength and function of the structure when cracks are properly sealed with the right products.
What is injection?
Grouting is a technique used to repair cracks and voids in concrete, masonry and foundations. In addition, injection can stop water leaks at pipe penetrations, casting joints or poorly cast concrete. Areo injects by drilling holes around the leaks. Then valves, also called nipples, are inserted into the holes. Epoxy or polyurethane is pumped through the nipples until the leak is stopped and any voids are filled.
Areo offers the injection of:
- Concrete floors
- Walls – both indoors and outdoors
- Casting ladle
- Concrete deck
We are currently working on a major project at Herlev Hospital, which includes injection of floor areas approx. 55,000 m2 and re-establishment of sound cloth in all doorways with subsequent casting and carbon fiber reinforcements.
Carbon fiber reinforcement
Concrete structures that are cracked or porous can be reinforced with carbon fiber.
Carbon fiber has a higher strength and lower density compared to traditional reinforcement materials such as steel.
In addition, carbon fiber does not corrode, which increases the lifespan of the structure.
