Why does properly poured concrete end up cracking

It is very easy to cause concrete cracking if the construction or maintenance are not done correctly. What are then the five main causes of cracking concrete?

1. The cement problem: Some workers in construction will add more water for a more fluid concrete. However, this will result in an increase in water-cement, causing the concrete to harden too quickly, and cause cracks.

2. Transport and mixing issues: If mixing and transporting concrete takes too much time, the water in the concrete will evaporate quickly. concrete . This leads to a concrete that is weaker on the construction site, unable to meet construction specifications.

3. Construction speed

4. Maintenance is unreasonable. During the period of maintenance, if late watering isn't maintained, the result will be the Cracking phenomenon Later in the year, concrete will be used. Concrete is used in a variety of ways. Concrete Surface Watering You can water the surface of the concrete often to speed up the drying process. Concrete will shrink if it is not watered. Late cracking occurs when concrete strength is decreased.

5. Environmental factors: If the environment at the construction site is relatively dry and there is high temperature, wind, or both, then the concrete surface evaporation is accelerated. This results in cracking on the concrete's surface. Concrete constructions are most likely to crack in summer or winter due to the temperature differences.

Solution: Add anti-cracking agents, a variety inorganic materials composite anticracking agent can stop more than 80% cracking of foam concrete, add 2-3 kg per cubic meter.
