You've been around the block once or twice to know that it's impossible to "glue" any type of structural crack together using epoxy pressure injection systems. Repairing cracks is not rocket science and the product you choose either fixes the crack or it doesn't.

Enter Torque Lock™, the new revolution to structural crack repair. Using Torque Lock™ Staples along with a quality epoxy (supplied with our kits) we can help you repair your concrete cracks, easily repair basement cracks, fracture lines in your foundations, driveways, walls, seawalls, or any other structural crack.

For example, water leaking through a basement can place a serious financial burden on the owner of the home to replace the damage, since large volumes of water can be detrimental to the structural integrity.

Another example, water leakage through the floor or wall of a swimming pool can soften the soil in which the pool is embedded and cause weakness in the support of the pool. They can also weaken the structural integrity of the pool structure itself. Similar problems result from these in other types of cement structures, such as dams, bridges, and seawalls.

A variety of different conventional approaches have been attempted, but with little success. For example, epoxy injection although these types of sealants are largely insoluble in water, they cannot be forced deep into cracks. And, such conventional materials do not adequately bond to the adjacent surfaces of fractures in the concrete. At the most, epoxy sealants will only form a surface patch over the problem. Water will eventually seep in and around the temporary patch and escape through the cracks in the concrete. In order to provide a rock solid repair, you must stabilize the crack, and as we previously stated, epoxy alone is not strong enough to stabilize a crack from widening.

When Torque Lock™ Staples are combined with epoxy, you can rest assure that the structure has been stabilized and fixed, permanently. The Torque Lock™ Staple is a revolutionary "concrete stitching" technique that is great for repairing structural cracks on any solid cement based surface. Using its patented Cam Lock™ technique, it stabilizes the crack by creating up to 5000 lbs of compression torque for each staple installed and keeps those 1/4" fractures from becoming a 1/2" fractures.
How To Use Torque-Lock Staples
Torque-Lock Step 1

Step 1.

Using the template provided, trace and mark cutouts along crack approximately every 12 inches, where the Torque-Lock Staple will be installed,  Alternate between large and small templates. Use a pencil to mark the circles, to indicate the location for the holes to be drilled on both sides of the crack.

 

Torque-Lock Step 2.

Step 2.

Drill into structure a minimum of 4-inches deep using a 1/2-inch. masonry bit, where the holes were position in step 1.  Use a masonry saw, to cut into the surface along the previously marked lines.  Make the cuts approximately 2-inches deep and chip out the inside of the rectangular shaped area, in order to provide a recessed space for the staples.  Drilling deeper, than the recommended depth of 4-inches, will not affect the performance of the Torque Lock Staples.  Do not chip out an area more than 2-inches deep.

Torque-Lock Step 3

Step 3.

Assemble the Torque-Lock Staples, before hand.  Using the epoxy provided, apply some into the previously drilled holes.  Using both hands, push the pins into the holes, drilled in the previous step.  Push the Torque Lock Staple, back towards the concrete surface, until the plate is recessed approximately 1.5–2 inches into the wall.  Tap with a hammer, if required ands make sure the staple is uniformly positioned.  Avoid getting epoxy on the Cam or Locking Plate.

Torque-Lock Ratcheting. Important.  Make sure that the ratchet square is facing inward, as shown, when positioning the Torque-Lock Staples.
Torque-Lock Step 4.

Step 4.

Make sure that the epoxy has set up.  Read the label for the manufacturer product instructions. Use a torque wrench and a 3/8th’s ratchet attachment and insert into the ratchet square.  Tighten clockwise, not exceeding 180°, until 40 pounds of torque is reached.  Do not tighten more than 40-pounds of torque pressure and do not turn the torque wrench more than 180°.

 

 

Step 5.

Use a carbide or diamond masonry blade,  to open the crack, between the installed staples, into a slight "V" shape. Clean out crack and cut outs, removing all dust and debris.

Torque-Lock Step 6.

Step 6.

Using a non-shrinking, hydraulic cement) fill in crack and cut outs. Trowel to tightly pack in cement, taking care not to leave and voids and leaving the repaired area smooth and ready for refinishing.  You can cover over the repaired area(s) with any finishing product, that best matches the surrounding area:  plaster, aggregate finishes, paint, tile, marcite, cool deck, etc.
