Sealing concrete cracks with MC-Bauchemie India crack repair products

Cracks occur in the concrete over time despite good quality control. Cracks are one of the signs that indicate damaged or distressed structures. However, it is fortunate that not all cracks are a sign of structural failure. These cracks have to be repaired for two reasons viz., for structural purposes and durability purposes. Cracks in concrete are caused by several variables including water intrusion, expansion and contraction from seasonal temperature changes as well as sun exposure. Various factors contributing to the formation of cracks in concrete include deformation, hydraulic shrinkage, thermal shrinkage and swelling. The cracks in concrete cannot be prevented entirely but they can be treated by using adequate material and technique of construction and specific design criteria. Timely identification of such cracks and adopting preventive measures are essential. It is important to understand the type of crack formed and its effects on structural stability. Suitable methods and products for the repair of cracks in concrete can be selected based on the evaluation of the crack in the structure for its causes.
