Problem: Gravity and Long Cure Time Make Vertical Repair Difficult
Over time, concrete structures may crack and spall due to factors such as poor installation, corrosion of rebar, freeze-thaw cycles, chemical attack, temperature fluctuations and impact damage. While concrete repair itself is a complex task, vertical concrete repair presents a unique set of challenges that demand specialized techniques and expertise.
Gravity, limited access and long curing time make repairing vertical concrete difficult. Gravity acts against the repair material in vertical and overhead repairs, leading to slumping and poor bonding. Contractors use shuttering to provide temporary support and containment until the fresh concrete cures and gains sufficient strength. Unfortunately, prep work and the 28 day cure-time needed for concrete cause downtime, financial losses and hindered access.
Solution: Use Rapid-Cure, Hi-Build Polymer Repair Materials
When it comes to vertical concrete repairs, selecting the right repair material is crucial to ensure effective restoration, durability, and long-lasting results. In many cases we use proven Belzona 4141 Magma Build epoxy composite for overhead and vertical repairs.
Belzona 4141 cures rapidly, ensuring the restored area quickly regains its structural integrity. It can be applied without shuttering and only minimal support, reducing prep work. Additionally, it exhibits exceptional adhesion properties, enabling it to bond strongly with various substrates, even on vertical and overhead surfaces. This strong bond reduces the risk of delamination or detachment over time.
Belzona 4141 also offers excellent chemical resistance, safeguarding the repaired area from corrosive substances commonly found in industrial environments. The repair material has a proven track record, with successful applications of concrete repairs worldwide.
Vertical and overhead concrete repair is a specialized endeavor that requires meticulous planning, technical expertise, and experienced professionals. Overcoming gravity, ensuring proper surface preparation, and achieving seamless material application make this a complex process. By understanding and addressing these difficulties, Banks Industrial Group can ensure the longevity and structural integrity of your concrete infrastructure.
