Why are Carbon Fiber Staples Needed?

The formation of poured basement wall cracks previously susceptible to ground movement or soil settlement are more likely to be structural in nature (in diagnosing structural cracks, they are usually 1/8″ or wider and tend to be horizontal, jagged or stair-stepped).  In most circumstances, the low pressure injection of an epoxy, such as Emecole Metro 121 Fast Curing Epoxy, is the most effective solution for structural crack repair. The strong bonding capabilities of Emecole Metro 121 Fast Curing Epoxy fuses a crack back together, forming a strong and watertight repair.

For applications in which ground movement, soil settlement or freeze/thaw cycles continue to be a re-occurring situation, the added stress placed onto the foundation may result in the formation of new cracks around recently repaired injected cracks, or in rare instances, the re-opening of previously injected cracks. The long-term protection of the basement wall against such excess stress will require additional reinforcement measures.

Crack Injection of Epoxy with Carbon Fiber Staples

The proven solution in this case is the Carbon Fiber Staple. The added installation of Carbon Fiber Staples, following the crack injection of epoxy, provides the necessary reinforcement strength to protect basement walls from the continued formation of structural cracks. By cross-stitching Carbon Fiber Staples along the face of an injected crack, the stress load is distributed away from the damaged area, preventing further damage or re-cracking down the line. When countersunk, Carbon Fiber Staples lay flat against the foundation leaving the wall with no obstruction. Carbon Fiber Staples will not rust or deteriorate. The wall can be painted over afterwards, providing a clean finished look.

The Emecole Metro 15 ft. Carbon Fiber Staple Structural Wall Crack Repair Kit provides a DIY friendly process for Carbon Fiber Staple installation.  Each Carbon Fiber Staple bonds to the wall via the included Emecole Metro 4121 Carbon Fiber Epoxy. The kit is equipped with the components to accommodate approximately 15 feet of crack.

There’s no better basement wall structural crack repair solution than the one-two combination of epoxy crack injection and the installation of Carbon Fiber Staples. For optimum results, we recommend homeowners first repair cracks via the Emecole Metro 10 ft. DIY Foundation Crack Repair Kit with epoxy injection. The installation of Carbon Fiber Staples following the injection of our epoxy will protect the repaired basement wall area and provide a long-lasting solution against the formation of additional cracks.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does Emecole Metro 4121 Carbon Fiber Epoxy packaged in a universal cartridge still two-component?

Yes. Our universal cartridge is engineered to separate Part A and Part B materials horizontally within the cartridge. The two components remain separate and are mixed upon dispensing from the cartridge.

Can this product be used in the middle of winter or when the temperature outside is below freezing? What is the coldest (or warmest) temperature your product will work in?

The ideal temperature for the use of the materials packaged in this kit is between 40 and 100 degrees Fahrenheit. Assuming that the basement is heated, any outside temperature should not impact the performance of the chemicals  during the basement crack repair process. The only caveat is that chemicals should not be stored in freezing temperatures.

Will Carbon Fiber Staples be effective for bowed basement walls?

No, a bowed basement wall requires an even stronger reinforcement option. Homeowners may consider our 36 ft. Carbon Fiber Fabric Strap Wall Repair Kit. For more immediate structural concerns, please consult with a contractor or a structural engineer.
