How can GFRC concrete be used to renovate a building?

Most often, concrete surface repairs are carried out in the case of elements such as balcony slabs, ceilings, columns and structural supports. Repair of concrete is also often carried out in construction facilities, such as concrete and reinforced concrete tanks. Concrete becomes more susceptible to destruction if reinforced with reinforcement.

How to repair concrete?

The principle is assumed that building materials should be repaired using materials that have similar physical and technical characteristics. In order for the coating filling the defect in the concrete surface to have similar properties, it is recommended to use cement-containing mineral mortars to repair the concrete.

Repair of concrete surfaces can be made, among others using cement mortar. It is a dry mix of cement, selected mineral aggregates and admixtures that improve technical parameters and working properties. It replaces traditional cement mortars prepared on site, greatly facilitating and speeding up the work. You can fill in cavities, repair stable cracks and other damage to concrete inside and outside the building. The mortar can also be used to repair surfaces exposed to high loads, eg car traffic.

GFRC can be used as a product for the repair of monuments. If reinforced concrete with visible corrosion spots is required, remove loose concrete parts to a healthy load-bearing substrate and clean the reinforcement with rust. You can do it manually or mechanically, depending on your needs and capabilities. After removing the rust, steel should be cleaned of rust residues with compressed air.
The cleaned steel requires protection with an anti-corrosion coating. After the protective layer has dried on the corrosion reinforcement, it is possible to start filling the cavities with cement mortar.
