Structural Crack Injection Epoxy.
Uses: Restore monolithic integrity to cracked structural elements by injecting Abojet into the crack 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: As Abojet bonds permanently to most substrates and is stronger than concrete, the “welded” repair is often stronger than the original material. It prevents the need for demolition where structural elements cannot be compromised. Abojet is dependable and cost-effective. It is available in prepackaged, 2-component cartridges or in bulk packaging for large projects. Available in three formulations for a variety of crack sizes.
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, the mixture begins to harden. Injected into a crack or cavity, it hardens quickly, filling the cavity and joining the two sides back together. The hardened system is dimensionally stable and virtually shrink-free.
Technical Characteristics: Each 10 fluid ounce cartridge fills 18 cubic inches. Cartridges include plunger and nozzle. Empty caulking tubes are sold separately for quart and gallon volume packaging. Color: gray.

It would be along the lines consistency of a very thin vaseline.
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.

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.
I have an older masonry/brick chimney with some serious cracks. Would Abojet be the product to seal and repair these cracks?
- I have a basement wall, standard "cinder block". Hairline cracks in the mortar due to settling. Is Abojet a good alternative to tuck pointing?
- Could this product be used on a large monument, i.e. grave monument? It is made up of several levels. The base is of cast concrete, where areas are crumbling away allowing the entry of moisture. It is from the 1880's.
