For structural repairs; Concrete Epoxy resin is the component to use. There is some preperation involved.
It is injected into the crack and forms a super strong bond with the concrete, often stronger than the material it is injected into...

Waterseal poured foundation


I've had the concrete epoxy done at my house. Small cracks were cleaned up, and small holes were drilled along the crack where the epoxy was injected. Construction adhesive/caulk is then applied over the crack. For larger cracks, you can clean up the crack and apply a hydraulic cement.

Waterseals are generally used for concrete block foundations, not poured foundations. Given that, a brand would be "Drylock," which can be purchased at home centers like Lowe's.
