Singapore Waterproofing’s specialists have recently repaired a number of concrete and joint edges. 𝗔 𝗴𝗿𝗲𝗮𝘁 𝗼𝘂𝘁𝗰𝗼𝗺𝗲 𝗳𝗼𝗿 𝗼𝘂𝗿 𝗰𝗹𝗶𝗲𝗻𝘁!

◾️  The best surface for safe and efficient movement of goods is a smooth, hard and uninterrupted surface.

◾️  Unsound concrete is removed.

◾️  Improved productivity of material handling and traffic efficiency.

◾️  Vehicles can move at speed without slowing down to manoeuvre over separated joints.

◾️  Reduced vehicle repair costs and downtime due to wheel replacement.

◾️  Time and Cost-Effective Solution – If left untreated, the defect grows wider and deeper and will eventually require expensive and time-consuming repairs.

 

THE TYPICAL METHOD USED BY  Singapore Waterproofing IN JOINT REHABILITATION IS AS FOLLOWS:

 

◾️    Repairs are square-cut into the concrete to prevent feather-edge cracking and to maximise durability. 

 

◾️    Polymer repairs are used for rapid setting and higher impact resistance.

 

◾️    Once set, we normally grind repairs to ensure an extremely smooth transition.

 

◾️    Joints are re-cut and re-sealed to protect them from further damage.

 

◾️    Re-sealed joints are primed if the substrate is porous, which can double the life of the seal.

 

◾️    Appropriate joint sealant system for the application is selected and installed

◾️    Joint Reduction – Wide joints suffer the most damage and any difference in level between the floor slabs will exacerbate the problem. Reducing the width of expansion joints to 10mm will help lower the impact of hard wheel traffic and minimise the chance of wheels getting caught in the joint.

 

 

 

The Singapore Waterproofing Company performs concrete slab surface and joint edge repairs as one of their many services – we usually upgrade ground conditions at distribution centres, industrial warehouses, hardstands, and civil infrastructure throughout Singapore. On this particular site, we were hired to fill the void beside a newly installed stormwater pipe situated underneath a concrete slab. Heavy vehicles are accessing this area for deliveries, so the void requires a filling that that provides the structural strength that can withstand heavy vehicular traffic over the filled void without collapsing.

For assistance and repairs, contact Singapore Waterproofing today. Inspection, tailored solutions and even the prioritization of remedial works such as leak sealing, waterproof membrane repairs and concrete defects repairs for multistory buildings, commercial, industrial and civil sites are all services we provide.

Singapore Waterproofing’ inspectors are equipped with extensive industry knowledge and the latest in non-invasive inspection technologies.  Our thorough site assessment and diagnosis process provides our clients with industry-leading, expert advice. Following an inspection, our specialist staff formulate a free, comprehensive quotation including recommendations tailored to the assessed concerns, which is then emailed to you in a timely manner.
