Staifix-Thor Helical Crack Stitching Kit
Ancon announces the launch of a 'Crack Stitching Kit'
New from Ancon, the Staifix-Thor Helical Crack Stitching Kit is a high strength, non-disruptive solution for the permanent repair of cracked masonry.
Ideal for either the remedial specialist or the contractor with a one-off repair job, the kit contains Staifix-Thor Helical reinforcing bars, cementitious grout, a paddle for grout mixing, a grout applicator gun with a flat nozzle, and a finger trowel.
Purchase of the Ancon kit, in preference to obtaining all the components individually, guarantees the correct specification and compatibility of reinforcement, grout and tools for this specific application. The kit is supplied in a single box with full installation instructions.
The stainless steel helical bars are chemically bonded into bed joints to stitch cracks, redistributing tensile forces and stabilising the structure. On completion, the bar and grout are concealed, retaining the original character of the wall.
