LCR in This Old House

Mon, 02/02/2015 - 12:51 -- Polygem

15 years ago, we were approached by the Handyman Club of America who wanted to review our LCR Liquid Concrete Repair kit and write about it and publish the article in their club magazine called American How-to.  We were thrilled and excited about this opportunity, but the editor cautioned me in adding that they will write about the kit and the process involved in using the product, and if it works....they will write about all the good things and if it didn't work out well....then they will write about that.   The article was a success and you can read all about it here at This Old House.

So give Dave a call....his direct line is (630) 346-4112

Methods to Repair a Leaky Foundation Crack

Wed, 12/04/2013 - 15:33 -- Polygem

EPOXY OR POLYURETHANE FOAM? A casual debate often will arise over the use of either epoxy or polyurethane foam for foundation crack repair. Both will fill the crack and stop water from entering through the crack. If stopping a leak is the only concern, then either product is fine to use. The question remains, which one is better? That depends on the type of crack and conditions present at the time of the repair.

Introducing "PolyDiamond"

Wed, 12/04/2013 - 14:15 -- Polygem
Thanks to the efforts of our Asian Rep Company Genesis Coatings, Polygem, Inc. is now officially registered to do business in China and all other Asian countries. I know all of us have seen that names don't always translate well into other languages and it was decided that "Gem" was far too confusing in the Chinese language and that Diamond would be a better fit for marketing our products overseas.

How to Fix a Basement Crack with LCR Epoxy

Thu, 04/04/2013 - 12:21 -- Polygem

Fixing a crack using the same high strength epoxy that professionals use is now easily done with the LCR Liquid Concrete Repair Kit.  The repair is done from the inside using a standard caulking gun where with low pressure, you “inject’ the liquid epoxy into the crack, filling the entire inside of the crack top to bottom with a high strength epoxy.  The epoxy cures and forms a “permanent” weld of the cracked concrete and water will not be able to re-enter the crack.
