Repair and rehabilitation of concrete structures with RELinforce™ EP Putty

Concrete is a porous material that can develop cracks, chips, or holes over time due to various factors such as weathering, impact, or structural stress. In such cases, Epoxy putty provides an effective solution for repairing and restoring damaged concrete surfaces. Epoxy putty is a type of adhesive material that consists of two components: a resin and a hardener. When these two components are mixed, a chemical reaction occurs, causing the putty to harden and create a strong, durable bond. RELinforce™ EP Putty is one such product used for a variety of repair and bonding applications. It is a two-component solvent-free thixotropic epoxy putty used for levelling concrete & metal surfaces with superior bonding characteristics. RELinforce™ EP Putty is manufactured by Reliance Composite and is used for the repair and rehabilitation of jetties, ports, bridges etc.
