Example text

An advantage to polymer materials is that they can be used in thin layers. Aggregate size is determined by the thickness of a repair. Repairs made overhead must be made in such a way that they will not sag. The minimum number of longitudinal bars in compression members is three bars within triangular ties. Portland cement hydration stops at, or near, freezing (32°F). Latex emulsions do not coalesce to form films at temperatures below about 45°F. Materials that can be used in colder temperatures generally require longer setting times.

An extended version of smooth blasting is known as cushion blasting, which is essentially the same as smooth blasting, with the exception that cushion blasting requires the filling of boreholes with wet sand. Cushion blasting is seldom used. Cutting is often used in conjunction with blasting. Selected cuts are made at prime locations to control the breakaway of concrete when blasting is employed. Sequential blasting allows for more delays to be used with each firing. This optimizes the amount of explosive detonated with each firing.

In contrast, high temperatures may make a repair material set faster and result in a decrease in the working life of the material. 1 Causes and Repair Approaches for Spalling and Disintegration Cause Deterioration likely to Continue Yes 1.
