ABOJET® CRACK-INJECTION SYSTEM: “Weld” Cracked Structural Elements Back Together
Uses: Restore monolithic integrity to cracked structural elements by injecting an epoxy compound into cracked to fill and “weld” it back together. Seals foundations and below grade walls against water seepage. The Abojet series of resins is most commonly used in the restoration of load-bearing walls such as foundations, retaining walls, abutments, swimming pools, dams, decks, silos, bridge piers, columns, domes, concrete pipes, and tanks.
Features and Benefits: Since Abojet bonds permanently and is stronger than concrete, the “welded” wall can be stronger than the original. It is the perfect solution where structural requirements cannot be compromised and a dependable cost-effective alternative to demolition.
The Abojet Crack Injection Process: The Abojet system consists of a resin and hardener packaged in a single cartridge. When the barrier separating them is plunged, they begin to harden. Injected into a crack or cavity, it hardens within minutes or longer depending on temperature. The hardened system is dimensionally stable and virtually shrink-free.

Q Recently, a corner in our basement began to leak when it rains. We now notice long cracks in the corner. Not clear yet from where the water is coming. If applied during a dry spell, will Abojet seal the leak, permanently? The basement is poured concrete, not blocks. ThanksAnswered by the admin
You can use Abojet on the structural wall cracks for seal the leaks. You'll have to dam up the cracks with Aboweld 55-1 while installing injection ports every 8-10 inches. The Abojet is applied through the ports.
