Hydration is essential to curing cement since the integrity of the result highly depends on the success of the hydration process.

The hydration process takes place once the cement grains begin to dissolve in water. The combination produces a series of reactions that produce more compounds over time. The accumulation of compounds results in the hardening and strengthening of concrete.

But there is more to hydration than just mixing water and cement and creating as many compounds as possible. Successful hydration depends on a number of factors.

Conventional construction knowledge holds that concrete, regardless of integrity, can damage over time due to factors such as changing temperatures and reinforcement steel corrosion. While old, worn concrete is susceptible to cracks, surface stains and imperfections, freshly applied concrete is also at risk of damage. This is possible if the concrete has been installed incorrectly or has encountered certain issues during application.


If these problems are not addressed immediately, the aesthetic condition and the strength of the concrete are compromised

For concrete repair contractors, premature repair failure is a massive red flag. Not only can this tarnish your reputation as industry professionals, you can also be liable for property damage or personal injury should the faulty repair job cause accidents. Your business may be also charged with the cost of repairs, including your client’s income loss from disruption of operations.

The two most common causes of premature repair failure are incorrect root cause diagnosis and inappropriate selection of repair strategy. To help you prevent these, here is a guide on determining the cause of cracked concrete and as well as possible repair methods.

Waterstops act as water-resistant barriers to protect concrete from moisture exposure and damage. Common applications include water towers, sewage tanks, bunded areas protecting tanks containing hazardous liquids and underground passageways.

PVC waterstops are ideal as they present high tensile strength and superior elongation capabilities. PVC can be moulded and welded with the appropriate amount of heat, while presenting strength in the expansion and contraction of concrete joints.

As a protection barrier, their chemical-resistant properties guard concrete from discolouration or damage caused by moisture, metal electrolysis and corrosive substances like acids and alkalis. This makes PVC waterstops ideal for water-retaining structures like pools, dams, tanks and reservoirs.

concrete repair productConcrete is a powerful material used in several industries. It is an excellent material for building and road foundations because of its high compressive strength. A mixture of aggregate and water, concrete is responsible for keeping structures together.

Over time, however, concrete damage can occur. The older concrete structures are, the more vulnerable they can be to cracks and corrosion. Changing temperatures, moisture and corroded reinforcing steel can all contribute to damaged concrete.
