S-Stitch Component System

Inexpensive, S-shaped, Stress Proof Stitches
Most versatile in a wide variety of situations
Stabilize inside & outside corner cracks

AquaBond's Patented S-Stitch Concrete Crack and Fracture Repair System is far more versatile and faster to install than other concrete repair staple or stitch systems.  Save tons of time by grinding shallower and narrower channels than other steel staples require - and shallower invasion reduces microcracking. You can even double up, or criss-cross S-Stitches for amazing resistance to future movement!

S-Stitch staples are embedded into cracked concrete and encapsulated in anchoring epoxy. Spanning the crack or fracture, a series of them, installed per instructions, restores and even improves, the strength of the concrete.

Key Features:

  • Inexpensive stitches and components
  • Lay-Flat "S" design can be installed in a very shallow channel - less invasive
  • 1/4" Diameter stress proof steel allows for far less chipping and hammering width and depth
  • S-Stitches come in 6, 12, 18 and 24-inch lengths
  • Install as a hook or in lay-flat position - even criss-cross for incredible concrete stability
  • Inside and outside corner kits are available
  • Proprietary anti-corrosion coating.
  • Repairs vertical, horizontal, diagonal and inner or outer curves/corners, steps, love seats, etc.
  • Excellent for walks and decks
  • Repairs structural cracks in any concrete surface
  • Available system components make S-Stitch system more versatile than any other staple system
