The formation of cracks in concrete slabs or the re-opening of previously repaired cracks often results from ground movement. When the concrete slab is actively moving or expanding, it is inevitable that the concrete will eventually crack.

Carbon Fiber Stitching Dogs provide the necessary strength (1,300 psi tensile strength) for reinforcement of the concrete slab. Each individual Stitching Dog fits into a single 1/4" saw cut, and is bonded with our Emecole 555 Hybrid Urethane. (see written instructions for details) Emecole 555 cures within one hour, and may be ground flat to hide the repaired area (especially ideal for when applying decorative overlays - overlays may be applied sameday). Stitching Dogs may be installed both indoors or outdoors, making it a suitable application for concrete cracks in driveways, patios, sidewalks, basement floors, garage floors or warehouse floors.

Emecole 555 is our premium hybrid urethane material used for the proper filling and repair of cracks in concrete slabs or floors. Emecole 555 is available with the Emecole Slab Crack Repair Kits. When installing Stitching Dogs, it is recommended to also repair any existing cracks in the slab. The Stitching Dog Kit may be used in-conjunction with a Emecole Slab Crack Repair Kit.

The Carbon Fiber Stitching Dog Kit includes Emecole 555 (for bonding each individual Stitching Dog within its saw cut), along with necessary dispensing accessories.

Additional tools to complete the repair: A right angle grinder with a crack chasing blade and a 3M Paint and Rust Stripper Wheel or equivalent - available for rental or purchase at most home improvement stores.

*To ensure optimum material performance, each Emecole 555 cartridge should be shaken approximately 4 to 6 minutes just before use.
