Concrete Spalling and Cancer

Concrete cancer is a wide spread concern within structures. It is caused by cracks in concrete allowing water ingress to the steel reinforcement. Water, when combined with carbon dioxide from air, chloride from salt near the coast, or Magnasite (a concrete surface finish) will form an acid and attack the reinforcement. Remedial Building Solutions can effect a complete restoration of integrity by removal of damaged concrete, treating or replacing and retying reinforcement and applying a suitably designed concrete mix.
