Looking for an affordable concrete repair alternative that will extend the design life of damaged concrete and provide preventive maintenance for aging structures?

Solution: ABS Consulting & Troubleshooting + Training + Repair Product

Fusion-Crete® has a similar finish to normal concrete. It has superior bonding characteristics that are able to withstand freeze-thaw cycling and other forces of nature. Unlike normal concrete, Fusion-Crete® can be applied as thin as 1/16 inch and can be feathered to zero with absolute bonding and no thin section fragility. Fusion-Crete® can be applied in a number of different applications including sidewalk overlays, curb & gutter repair, step and retaining wall repair, bridge parapet walls, residential driveways, loading ramps and numerous other concrete aprons and structures.

Cracks in concrete have always posed a challenge. The quest for a solution has prompted our major advancement in the development of ABS’s Crack Repair technology, proven in numerous project sites across Alberta including crack repairs on the Taxi-way and Loading Aprons at the Calgary International Airport. ABS’s crack repair method is a non-destructive structural repair, which is intended as preventive maintenance to reduce the movement of cracks below the Fusion-Crete® Overlay System. To date, the tested surfaces (1996) have not experienced apparent reoccurrence of the original cracks below. This development has significantly influenced the concrete repair industry in Alberta.

Other products and services from Abs Concrete Systems


ABS Concrete Systems » Protecrete® Densifier + Repeller

We use Densifier + Repeller because it gives us time to work with the material and we get an excellent bond to the substrate. Adding a Densifier + Repeller as a primer for the substrate will prevent possible suction of the Fusion-Crete repair mortar. It is also important to water the slab but not to have any standing water when the material is applied. To place an order or request more information.
