Question on concrete cracking in and around Grain Bins

I was born and raised on a small farm in central Kansas. I remember my dad talking about cracks in the concrete around our grain bins. Is this still a problem today? I developed a two part epoxy based mortar paste and I wondered if marketing it to repair the cracks in bins would be a good market. If the response here is positive I will start trying to meet with local farms here in Missouri where we live to show the product.

I welcome any and all comments and help or insight you all can give me concerning this.
Thank you
Dennis

My two cents- pretty small market to be chasing.

I’d call the local concrete crews or city workers to try in their repair jobs.

Probably have a better chance of selling Mono Foam to a plumber to fill in his butt crack.

It's easy enough to be pleasant, when life goes by like a song. But the man worth while, is the man with a smile, when everything goes dead wrong!

Seems like most of the cracks I notice that would require repair are from animals digging out the fill under the concrete. No amount of epoxy will fix that.

Would your epoxy flow well enough to fill some of these holes?
