Concrete Repair | Concrete Walls | Concrete Floors | Concrete Steps
The structure of mineral building materials that are exposed to the weather is always weakened. This weakness is usually caused by an expansion of the original pore structure, rarely by a real loss of binding agent. The central task of a consolidation measure is to specifically fill the pore spaces created as a result of the weathering. This occurs by penetration of an additional nature-identical binding agent.
Despite the high quality and special qualities of concrete, damage can occur that requires maintenance, repair and protection. A distinction must be made between environmental influences and production faults with respect to concrete damage. Environmental influences can include exhaust fumes, acid rain, frost and de-icing salts. Here, the chemical properties are changed so that the steel reinforcements in the concrete start to rust. Shrinkage cracks, pipes, gravel pockets and insufficient concrete cover are typical production faults that also promote corrosion of the reinforcements.
Concrete replacement systems for structural stability-relevant repairs show their versatility in applications that range from full-surface use on civil engineering construction works through to the re-profiling of extremely exposed building components in areas treated with de-icing agents. One special property is the high resistance when used with water containing sulphates.
The concrete repair systems by Remmers can be used to protect against corrosion and coat everything in just one day. It is not worth travelling to a building twice to carry out a small repair job on e.g. balcony tiles or railings. It is therefore essential to have a fast product system that works with a few matched products and, at the same time, has very good workability characteristics.
