A crack in a concrete floor is typical for both old and new floors alike. There are many ways to repair cracks but when doing an epoxy coating that require multiple coats you need to repair that crack fast. I ran into this issue as I was installing a metallic epoxy floor in our showroom. I had only a limited amount of down time in which to work and needed a fast set epoxy that can be injected into the crack. Lucky for me, I sell just a product and I was able to grab one off of the shelf and a little over an hour later I was applying my first coat of epoxy.
I didn’t have to waste any time worrying about mixing ratios or measuring. I just popped the cap off, put on the mixing nozzle and put it in the gun and started injecting the crack. The material is very thin and has a consistency of water so it easily flows into a tight crack, like a hairline. Jet black in color it is easy to make sure you have the crack filled, however when cured it is concrete gray in color. When I say this is a fast set crack repair, I mean FAST SET! I had the room temperature around 75F and within minutes the epoxy began stiffening and curing. I gave it 1 hour and then sanded the material down with 120 grit and my orbital sander. To be honest, I forgot to check that the epoxy was fully cured and just went to town sanding away but lucky for me the fast set crack repair lived up to its name. It was rock hard and it saved the day! I was able to able get the primer coat of epoxy down less than 2 hours after I began my floor patching which saved me an entire day.
Does your pond leak? Many fish ponds are constructed of cement plaster over concrete blocks. From thermal movement these ponds will sometimes develop hairline cracks which will then leak water out. Many people will chip the crack out and do the usual hydraulic cement patch, and within a short period of time it cracks again. The Chargar Corporation has developed a thick 100% epoxy coating that can bridge the crack, waterproof it and prevent further cracking from movement. The Epoxy Waterproofer can be brushed applied over the crack forming a 15 mil impervious film. It has slight expansion and contraction ability. It comes in clear or colors.
Won’t Harm the Fish
Since Epoxy Waterproofer is 100% solids it becomes completely inert once it has fully cured. This means that not only will it stop your pond leak but it will not leach any harmful chemicals and will not hurt the livestock. It will not cause any algae issues by leaching nitrates or phosphates. Customers and municipalities have used this epoxy to seal ponds and water features for over 30 years with no ill effects.
Pond leaks aren’t the use for Epoxy Waterproofer. It can be used to build and seal water fountains of any size. Since it is safe and certified to use with potable water many customers in the agricultural industry have used it to waterproof animal drinking troughs and and cisterns.

Shower grout is just a mixture of sand, cement and water; so it is naturally porous and absorbent. Left unsealed, it can soak up dirt and mildew like a sponge and once it gets in… it can be time consuming to get out. You can seal the grout easily without breaking the bank.
Ultimate Stain Repellent is a shower grout sealer like no other. It penetrates deep into the grout between tiles chemically reacting to a form a hydrophobic and oleo-phobic layer. This chemical reaction blocks the further passage of moisture between tiles and keeps the shower recess watertight. Not only does it block the passage of water, unlike other sealers, it also blocks oils from soaps and shampoos that can leave hard to clean stains.
Water Based Formula
This water based formula is safe for use in any shower, indoor or outdoors. There is no strong odor when applying Ultimate Stain Repellent and there is no change to the appearance of the tile or grout. This material penetrates deeply for long lasting protection and easy cleaning.

A leaking basement is a common problem that has a very simple solution. Water can seep through foundation walls leaving minerals on the surface or even puddles on the floor. Without proper ventilation mold and mildew will quickly take root. Concrete or block walls may begin to soften or even crumble from prolonged water damage. It can be used as a waterproofing underlayment for long term water protection. Stop the water for good with Epoxy Waterproofer! For 40 years Epoxy Waterproofer has proven it’s ability to stop water and withstand tons of hydro-static pressure.
Stop Radon Gas:
Epoxy Waterproofer works by creating a 15 mil impervious film on the surface of the wall that tenaciously bonds with the strength of 100% epoxy. An added result of completely stopping the transmission of water is that you also stop the transmission of vapor and gases, including radon gas. Epoxy Waterproofer will seal your basement or garage and prevent the intrusion of radon gases.
It’s Safe and Easy to Apply
No solvents are added to this 100% epoxy, there is no obnoxious smells or toxic fumes. Application is as easy as evenly mixing the part B into the part A and then applying with a brush or roller over the affected areas. Add color packs if desired in order to tint the epoxy to easier blend away or hide repairs to your leaking basement.
Epoxy Waterproofer withstands hydro-static pressure and will not peel or flake off of the surface.
