Henkel has introduced LOCTITE 7257 Magna-Crete, which is designed to deliver a durable, long-lasting concrete repair; it also cures in a fraction of the time taken by traditional methods. According to the company, it is possible to walk on Magna-Crete after just 45 minutes, so disruption to productivity is minimised.

Magna-Crete mixes like concrete and is quick and easy to apply with a trowel. It is a two-component, quartz-filled epoxy that is suitable for floors in warehouses and manufacturing facilities and also for the repair of other concrete structures such as ramps, support beams, bridge decking and base plates. It can also be applied over existing rebar and screen mesh reinforcement, even if it is rusted.

The product has high compression strength. It is also resistant to abrasion, impact and most common industrial liquids and chemicals, excluding acids. Magna-Crete will not shrink or crack and provides good bonding to concrete and other surfaces, including wood, glass, steel and other various construction materials.

This rapid functional cure of Magna-Crete makes it particularly useful for applications where downtime costs money. Whereas a traditional concrete repair could take an area or system out of service for days, Magna-Crete restores it to full use in a matter of hours. It is therefore beneficial in the repair of water channels, wastewater settlement tanks, crane and track rails and base plates for chemical tanks and machinery.
