Does the Non-Shrink Grout ‘Unicorn’ Really Exist? – Part 2

Last week we discussed the different types of shrinkage and the dimensional stability of grout products. This week we will examine timing, testing and shrinkage compensation of grout. In the most part, engineers and applicators will observe shrinkage at a specific point in time. Test data will often refer to ‘28-day shrinkage’ which is the

Does the Non-Shrink Grout ‘Unicorn’ Really Exist? – Part 1

Just like the elusive unicorn, there’s a willingness to believe that non-shrink grouts really do exist. This imaginary grout not only lives on in the eyes of some engineers and end-users, but is repeatedly peddled by some of the leading suppliers of high-performance pre-packaged grout products. To determine once and for all if this ‘unicorn’

Concrete Repair: Why Modulus of Elasticity is the Most Critical Measure of Structural Performance

– By Daniel Bosco From the wide range of opinions about the best performing materials to the dozens of available products, the selection of concrete repair materials is a highly complex and challenging task. Depending on the application, the key drivers of performance can be categorised as either; durability, structural or aesthetic performance. This blog

The 5 Main Types of Concrete Failure – Here’s What You Need to Know

In the world of concrete repairs, the cause of the problem is not often visible, rather it is just a symptom of the real cause. Before any external faults show, stresses build up, internal chemical reactions may take place and unknown costs are already needed to repair the concealed failure. By the time it is

Sydney Water Is Implementing Trusted Technology At The New St Marys Treatment Plant

Sydney’s North-West is predicted to have an additional half a million residents by 2040. Population growth at this rate means that utility infrastructure is one of the hottest topics in the region for the civil engineering industry. For this project, Sydney Water is looking to “adopt some of the most trusted and reliable technologies that

What if Concrete was Protected Before it was Placed?

Ever since the introduction of high-performance concrete protection coating in the 80s and 90s, the industry has accepted the order of operations as the following: By questioning the industry’s status-quo, Bluey has redefined the entire concrete protection process. The idea of protecting concrete prior to placement reduces the previous order of operations to just 2
