    Epoxy Injection: Myths & Misunderstandings:

    Since most people in the industry have a general understanding of how epoxy injection is performed my presentation focuses on some common misconceptions.  Topics included are:

    • Surface Seal; The Critical Step
    • Injection Process; Port-to-Port vs. Injection to Refusal
    • Manifolding; Injecting Numerous ports at Once
    • Crack Cleaning; Benefit or Detriment
    • Air Entrapment; A Concern?
    • Moving Cracks; Can They be Injected?
    • Quality Assurance and Testing
