Concrete Spalling Repair

Commercial, Industrial & Residential Projects

Sydney, Central Coast, Newcastle & The Hunter

Concrete spalling, also known as concrete cancer, typically occurs when concrete erodes or when water penetrates internally. 

When erosion or water infiltrates the concrete, the structural steel within the concrete will start to rust, and the integrity of the concrete structure declines.

If the steel within concrete has become exposed to water and other elements, the inevitable rusting process will compromise the strength of the structure.

This concrete spalling process will not only deform and ruin the facade of the concrete, but structural collapse will be inevitable.

Concrete is permeable, so when the inner steel is rusting, it will bleed off to the surface. When this happens, rust stains will appear on the concrete.

If ignored, the situation will worsen when the rusted steel starts to expand.  It is at this point that concrete will start to break off, and repair is now required immediately.

Concrete Remediation Process

1. Consultation & Quote

Sometimes buildings require more than concrete remediation, so we conduct a full inspection of the site to ensure no future surprises will impact your quote.

2. Removing Concrete

Work begins with carefully removing the concrete from the affected area, fully exposing the rusted steel bars.

3. Rust Teatment

Via a mix of chemical remover and special tools, the rust on the steel bars is fully removed. 

4. Applying Protective

To prevent future rusting, steel bars are coated in a protective epoxy coating.

5. Replacement Concrete

After the rust-preventing epoxy coating has dried, replacement concrete is filled in, sealing the section cleanly.

6. Handover

Your project manager will walk you through everything that was completed, answer any questions you may have, and ensure you are satisfied with the work.
