There are several types of materials that are used for the repair of concrete structures. For example, unmodified Portland cement mortar or grout, latex-modified Portland cement mortar or concrete, non-retractable quick-setting mortar and polymer concrete. The choice of such materials is based on their performance and cost. In addition to the compatibility of the repair material with the damaged structure and the ease of application.
In general, cement and steel are frequently used to repair various types of damage on construction sites. Under various conditions, non-shrinkable cement or a mixture similar to aluminum powder in ordinary Portland cement will be suitable. Steel is available in different shapes, such as bolts, rods, angles, channels, expanded metal and welded wire cloth. Wood and bamboo are considered to be the most common materials for organizing temporary supports and scaffolding, etc.
This repair material can be customized according to requirements for use in repairing different types of concrete damage. Portland cement mortar or grout is the most common repair material used to repair damage to concrete structures. Therefore, successful repair work not only requires an excellent selection of repair materials, but also requires practicing an appropriate execution procedure.
