Concrete floors often suffer aggression from impacts, wear, etc., causing their degradation. Heavy traffic accelerates degradation of damaged areas on concrete floors.
Repairs made with traditional mortar (cement, sand), besides being time consuming processes, do not offer effective results, due to the mechanical resistances being lower than the request.
Looking for concrete repair in Tacoma? Asphalt patching is a very popular method and it has a high mechanical adhesion, fast hardening and great fluidity, makes the service much faster, practical and with great resistance.
Preparation of base
Take a percussion test, looking for badly adhering areas (with cavo sound). Demarcate the affected area. Cut the deck with cutting blade, with a minimum separation of the area to be repaired. The corners should be straight.
Remove all deteriorated material, reaching a minimum depth of 3 cm. Clean the stand, taking care to remove all dust and dirt that could compromise the good adhesion of asphalt patching. Wet the area to be reclaimed by regulating the water absorption of the base to prevent loss of water from the recovery mortar.
Preparation of the product
Prepare asphalt mixture in a clean, a container protected from the sun, wind and rain, with clean water, in the proportion indicated on the product packaging, near the place of application.
The addition of water should be done in two steps. First add 2/3 of the required water and mix intensely for 3 minutes. Add the remaining water and mix for another 3 minutes, when asphalt mixture will reach its maximum fluidity. Prepare sufficient quantities to be used in a maximum period of 30 minutes, for a temperature of 25 C.
The mixture can also be made mechanically.
Pour the product filling the entire area to be repaired to the desired height. Finish carefully. Protect the exposed area until the product is dry (at least 3 days) to prevent premature water evaporation.
