Cracking occurs in industrial concrete floors due to many reasons, but when these cracks are very deep, it is unsafe to continue using the defected area.
In most cases, when the cracks a no longer moving depending on the width, depth and length of the cracking, then they can be easily repaired. In most cases, the defected area would be cut out and repaired using our PSR Epoxy Mortar. In cases where the cracks are continuing to move then it would suggest this is due to the joints in the concrete slab - for more information on our Industrial Joint Repairs click here
Curling is when a concrete slab is distorted into a curved shaped in an upward or downward movement of the edges and corners of the slabs. This is due to differences in either the moisture content or temperatures of the surface layer and the slab.
Delamination is similar to Blistering - in both cases, the top surface of concrete gets separated from underlying concrete. The hardening of the top layer of before the hardening of the underlying concrete causes water and air to bleed and get stuck between the two surfaces creating a space between the two layers and causing to delimitation to occur.
Dusting is also known as Chalking; this is the formation of fine and loose powdered concrete gathering on the hardened concrete by disintegration. The leading cause being the excess presence of water within the concrete slab. Bleeding of the water causes fine sand-like particles to rise to the top of the surface and create a dust-like layer on top.
Honeycombing is a term used to describe concrete surfaces that are course & stoney. Insufficient mixing or using the wrong aggregates will encourage failure of the bonding or the concrete mix and create spoiled areas.
Scaling and Spalling
Scaling and Spalling, describing both cases in which the surface of the concrete floor starts to flake and deteriorate. The main cause of this type of situation is water penetrating the concrete slab; other causes would include inadequate curing, low strength concrete and creating efficient slopes for drainage.
Popouts are fragments of porous rock that break out from the surface of the concrete leaving a hole. Swelling is created by internal pressures and causes a rupture in the concrete surface.
Blistering is the formation of hollow bumps on the concrete surface; this is due to entrapped air under the finished concrete surface.
