It is very easy to cause concrete cracking if the construction or maintenance are not done correctly. What are then the five main causes of cracking concrete?
1. The cement problem: Some workers in construction will add more water for a more fluid concrete. However, this will result in an increase in water-cement, causing the concrete to harden too quickly, and cause cracks.
2. Transport and mixing issues: If mixing and transporting concrete takes too much time, the water in the concrete will evaporate quickly.
. The result is a concrete that cannot meet construction specifications, resulting in cracks in the concrete.
3. Construction speed
4. Maintenance is unreasonable. During the period of maintenance, if late watering isn't maintained, the result will be the
Later in the year, concrete will be used. Concrete is used in the future.
Concrete Surface Watering
You can water the concrete often to speed up the drying process. Concrete will shrink drastically if it is not watered. Late cracking occurs when concrete strength is decreased.
5. Environmental factors: If the environment at the construction site is relatively dry and there is high temperature, wind, or both, then the evaporation rates of the surface concrete are accelerated. This results in cracking on the concrete's surface. Concrete constructions are most likely to crack in the winter or summer because of the temperature differences.
Solution: Add a crack-preventing agent. A variety of inorganic composite materials can prevent the foam concrete from cracking by more than 80%. Add 2-3 kilograms of anti-cracking material per cubic meter.
