Grinding & Crack Filling Process

Grinding & Crack Filling Process


Preparation > Diamond Grinding

Diamond grinding is a concrete restoration technique that fix irregularities such as pits, divots, faulting and roughness on concrete. This is achieved by using diamond bits to grind the surface.

This preparation technique also leaves a very smooth profile-ideal for epoxy coating applications. Diamond grinding also profiles the concrete and removes contaminants from the surface.


Preparation > Crack Filling

Cracks fall into two categories: static and moving. Static cracks are hairline flaws that only affect the surface, such as craze cracks and plastic shrinkage cracks. They typically require little or no repair, so you can get by with normal surface prep.

Moving cracks, or active cracks, are more serious. They are often structural in nature and continue through the entire depth of the concrete. Causes include insufficient spacing and sequencing of control joints, not isolating new concrete from old, and improper subgrade compaction.
