Waterproof Concrete Steps That Work

Posted on: March 25th, 2018 by

Ensuring a waterproof concrete is an important measure of protection you can afford your property. Leakage and seepage are effective in destroying your home property or office building. The leakage or seepage may be small, but over time, the leakage will grow and the damage it can cause your property may be serious.

But even if the seepage is just small, it can still cause damage. If the leak is in the wall, all things-furniture, appliances and décor-may be damaged with the water or fluid that leaks. The same thing can be said if the leakage is in the basement.

Your expenses may double if you will not act as soon as possible. The damage the leak can cause may grow, plus you have to spend money to repair or replace damaged belongings. Doing a concrete damp-proofing is amenable, although it may take a few steps to accomplish.

First of all, you have to stop the leaks. Find the source of the leak or its cause and fix it. It is easy to detect the leakage. The area is usually damp and moisture begins to seep through it. It is best if you fix the problem by using an outside service company.

There are three causes of seepage. The water pressure from the source or anywhere from outside may have built up, forcing water to seep through the pipes. It could also be that the house has already started to deteriorate. Or, the common cause is when the quality of materials used in constructing the house is substandard.

So, after you have ensured that there are no cracks or holes in the area you would like to make waterproof concrete, apply a waterproofing compound directly to the affected area or area you would like to be waterproof.

Depending on the size of the cracks, there are appropriate products to apply. If the crack is just a hairline, then applying a regular waterproofing mix will suffice. Nevertheless, cracks that are larger than 1/8 inch should be cleaned and patched first before you apply the waterproofing compound.

Special epoxy and latex cement formulas are good for small patching or mortaring jobs. But if the job is big, it is best to mix your own mortar for patching holes and cracks before waterproofing the area. The common mortar mixture for filling up the holes and cracks is one-part cement and two-part sand. The water should only be enough to create thick slurry.

A putty knife or typical trowel will help you fill the holes and cracks with the mortar mixture. If the leakage is caused by a pressure from the water system, you may need to use a chipping chisel and hammer to create a dovetail groove.

Some close the cracks and holes by using a weep pipe through the wall to allow water trapped against the wall to escape. Now, you are ready to work on your waterproof cement. Spray the area you would like to make waterproof with water to moisten it, before you apply the waterproofing mix.

Reducing Concrete Stamping Cost

Posted on: March 21st, 2018 by

Concrete stamping has been known to be one of the best ways one can use to decorate their concrete structures. However, the concrete stamping cost can vary from one design to another. There are different designs and colors one can use for concrete stamping. They can range from a few hundred dollars to thousands of dollars.

There are very many factors that will contribute to the concrete stamping cost. Some of the factors are the ones that are listed below. Weather should be something that you should be keen on. This is because rain can ruin the concrete stamping process that you are undertaking. Be sure to have a rough idea of the weather for the days to come.

Cement should be used on a minimum of five sacks. Use of less cement will lead to poorly stamped concrete. The job may then have to be redone to improve its outlook. The redoing will mean greater expenses than normal.

When using liquid color to design concrete stamping that you want, us the normal finishing procedures. This will reduce the overall concrete stamping cost. If you will happen to use hardener, use a tamper or screed to finish of normally. If you do not have such tools, you can implement the use of a magnesium float to help you finish. Use of a steel trowel should be implemented such that it can be finished perfectly. Unfortunately some people have been known to use the steel trowel before they apply the final color hardener. This is not advisable as it might lead you to repeat the whole concrete stamping process. Make sure that when you are applying hardener that there will be no possibility of water on the surface that you are using. Generally, 100 lbs. per 100 square feet for lighter colors would be required for coverage.

When you are floating or toweling, do not over do it. Over floating or toweling will make water to rise to the surface. When this happens you will find that once the water has risen to the surface, it reduces color density. At the same time remember not to fog or sprinkle water on the surface. Color hardeners that are bought will have lumps due to the settlement that occurs on the hardener when it is being shipped. To get rid of these clumps, fluff the hardener by using your hands. This is the same case with the release agents as they also settle. If these procedures are followed keenly, you should be able to reduce the overall concrete stamping cost.

If you are not going to do the job yourself, make sure that you hire professionals who have experience in this line of work. They will be able to tell you where to buy the necessary materials at competitive market prices. They will also be able to guide you on what amount of items such as hardeners or paints so that you do not purchase materials that will not be needed. You will find that the concrete stamping cost can be able to be reduced significantly with proper planning and use of the above mentioned steps.

How to Erect a Concrete Column

Posted on: March 19th, 2018 by

Concrete columns are used for carrying loads of a building. They transfer the same to a suitable soil bearing capacity. They carry loads horizontally, vertically and laterally. They can be erected as free standing, used for hanging gates. Alternatively they can be incorporated within the walls of a building structure. Concrete columns are made from steel and concrete cast in a form work. These are done in circular, rectangular or square shapes.

In erecting concrete columns the load to be carried is considered. This determines the size of column and type of reinforcement to use. The process of erection commences by setting up a base. A pit is first excavated to a suitable soil bearing capacity in depth. Blinding to the pit is done to protect the soil touching the steel reinforcements. When the base is cast, steel is exposed. This reinforcement is used as starter bars for the column.

Form work of the required column size is formed first aside. The already tied steel is joined together with the starter bars. This ensures the column starts from the ground upwards. The steel should be free from oils and rust. Use binding wire to tie together all steel. Its important to cast concrete in lifts. This should not exceed two thousand five hundred millimeters in height. When the steel work is complete, then form work assembly starts.

The form work for erecting a column is fixed by opening the sides. Its then slid to have the steel inside the box. Once the box is upright, the form work is then fastened and supported on all sides. Concrete is then poured and vibrated until it reaches the top of the box. It is left for seven days. Curing is done from the top. After seven days the form work is then removed to expose the cast column. This is continuously cured for another Seven days.

Pervious, The “Greener” Concrete

Posted on: March 10th, 2018 by

As fuel prices rise and the debate over global warming heats up, we watch our communities become more and more environmentally conscious. Whether its energy efficient appliances or bamboo flooring, everyone, builders and consumers alike are looking for ways to build and buy green. While helping to lead this movement, concrete has been at the forefront of sustainable development. Concrete being recyclable, produced locally and having a high reflectivity demonstrates a few of the ways using concrete helps buildings obtains points on the (LEED) system, a green building rating system put out by the U.S. Green Building Council. Now by tackling storm water management, concrete has found a way to be even greener. Pervious concrete is quickly becoming the next testimonial to the environmental advantages that concrete can offer.

Picture this, a 20 home development with 32,000 square feet of paved surfaces including driveways, sidewalks and streets, all of which is done with a material that generates zero runoff! This is a reality in Sultan Washington, where an entire development was done in pervious concrete, allowing the rainwater to pass thru the pavement and recharge the natural ground water table instead of draining into a municipal system. The concrete that made this possible is porous, made like traditional concrete but little or no sand or fine aggregate, leaving a void percentage between 15 and 35 percent to allow for the movement of water through the pavement.

This along with proper placement techniques gives you a pavement that water can infiltrate at a rate of 3 to 8 gallons per square foot per minute. While being slightly less edible that a Rice Crispy Treat it has a similar appearance and structure. The cement paste like the marshmallow, acts as a glue holding the aggregate or Rice Crispies together, while still leaving space for water to pass thru to the base layer of stone aggregate, before reentering the earth. This system has been used in freeze thaw environments since 1985 and is beginning to pick up steam here in Michigan, with just under a dozen projects on the ground and approximately 20 more being planned for next year.

With all of the environmental advantages of traditional concrete, pervious concrete is even friendlier to our ecosystem. In pavement applications concrete offers a reflective surface that prevents the increase of the ambient air temperature, consequently preventing the heat island effect and helping to lower cooling bills in the summer. This same reflectivity makes it easier to light concrete streets in comparison to those paved with a darker materials, allowing you to save on energy cost. Pervious concrete not only gives these benefits but adds several others, like the mediation of first flush pollutants and allowing you to pave up to the root line of adjacent trees and shrubs.

The first halve inch to inch of rain carries away many pollutants from the surface of pavement oil, break dust, coolant and other pollutants typically make their way into a storm sewer and eventually end up in a local water source. Occurring within the pconcrete and stone base that sits underneath are microbes that eliminate 80% to 90% of these first flush pollutants prier to returning the water to the water table. Also with water passing thru the pervious, you no longer have to worry about plant and tree roots not getting enough water or nutrients because of adjacent pavement. So with pervious concrete you get all of the sustainable advantages of traditional concrete and even more environmental perks.

Pervious concrete is giving Michigan one more option in our journey toward sustainable development and helping us to build green.

If you have any question or require more information about pervious concrete please contact the Michigan Concrete Association at (517)-393-1711. Whether you’re looking for energy savings from an ICF (Insolated Concrete Form) home, placing a decorative concrete patio, installing concrete counter tops or reducing water pollution with porous pavement, concrete has a green solution for you.

Concrete Crusher Outline

Posted on: February 25th, 2018 by

Cone crusher is suitable to crush various kinds of ores and rocks of medium or above medium hardness,and cone crusher is of stable structure, high efficiency, easy adjustment, and use economically, etc. The spring safety system of crusher acts as an overloading protection system that allows metals to pass through the crushing chamber so as not to damage the cone crusher.The safety system uses dry oil and water as two kinds of sealed formation to make plaster powder and engine oil separated to make surereliable performance. The type of crushing chamber depends upon the size of feeding and fineness of the crushed product. The standard type(PYB) is applied to medium crushing, the medium type is applied to medium or fine crushing and the short head type is applied to fine crushing.

Working Principle of Cone Crusher

Cone crusher crushes materials by the working surface between the movable cone and fixed cone. The movable cone of the cone crusher is supported by spherical bearing and fixed on an hanging erect shaft which is set in the eccentric sleeve, and the sleeve is set on the stopping and pushing bearing. The movable cone and erect shaft are drived by the eccentric shaft sleeve together. The eccentric shaft sleeve is driven by horizontal shaft and fimbriated gear, and the wheel of the conveyor belt is drived by motor through v-belts.The lower part of vertical shaft is installed in the eccentric sleeve. When the eccentric sleeve of cone crusher rotates, there is a conical surface lined out by the shaft. When the movable cone comes near the fixed cone, rocks are grinded into pieces, when the cone leaves, grinded materials is discharged from the diacharge hole. The fixed cone can be ascended or descended by adjusting setting to adjust the width of discharge hole, consequantly the output size is determined.

Concrete Grinding Mill

Posted on: February 12th, 2018 by

Concrete solidifies and hardens after mixing with water and placement due to a chemical process known as hydration. The water reacts with the cement, which bonds the other components together, eventually creating a robust stone-like material. Concrete is used to make pavements, pipe, architectural structures, foundations, motorways/roads, bridges/overpasses, parking structures, brick/block walls and footings for gates, fences and poles. 

Concrete is used more than any other man-made material in the world.As of 2006, about 7.5 cubic kilometres of concrete are made each yearmore than one cubic metre for every person on Earth.

The purpose of the Shenbang High Pressure Grinding Mill is to grind materials in the fields of building materials, mining, metallurgies and chemical industry. The materials should be non-flammable and non-explosive. Examples of the materials are: quartz, feldspar, barite, fluorite, dolomite, garnet, carborundum, bauxite, zircon, marble, calcite, iron ore, rock phosphate, coal, ceram, slag and so on(400 kinds of materials). The materials should have the hardness less than 9.3 in Mohs scale and humidity less than 6 percent. The granularity of the end products can be changed from 30 to 425 meshes.

The High-pressure Suspension Grinding Mill has the same working principle as Raymond Mill, but its grinding fitting is furnished with 1000 1500 kg pressure spring. When the machine works, the grinding roll, under the action of high pressure spring and centrifugal force, rolls close up to grinding ring, its rolling pressure ratio is 1.2 times of that of Raymond mill given an identical condition, but its output may increase 20% to 30%When the grinding roller and grinding ring reach a certain degree of abrasion, please adjust the length of high-pressure spring to keep the constant grinding pressure between grinding roller and grinding ring, so as to ensure a stable output and fineness. 

Features Of The Three-ring High Pressure Grinding Mill:

1. High-efficiency and low consumption

With the same end-products fineness and motor power, its output is over 1 time of that of Jet Mill, Mix Mill, and Ball Mill.

2. Easy-damaged parts with longer working life

The grinding roll and ring are made of special materials. Generally, their work life is more than one year, but, which could come up to over 3 years, when it processes calcium carbonate and Calcite.

3. Security and Reliablity

Because there are no rolling bearing and bolts in the grinding chamber, we can not see the problems of bearings and sealings easily damaged and machine destroyed due to the bolts looseness.

4. Cleansing and Environment Protection

Adoption of Pulse dust collector and muffler reduces the industrial dust pollution and noise, which reaches the National Standard.

When the machine works, the grinding roll, under the action of high pressure spring and centrifugal force, rolls close up to grinding ring, its rolling pressure ratio is 1.2 times of that of Raymond mill given an identical condition, but its output may increase 20% to 30%

Concrete Washout Systems

Posted on: February 3rd, 2018 by

Construction sites have long been identified as a major contribution to the pollution of urban runoff pollution prevention good practice not carried out regularly. Materials washed into the storm drain have a direct impact on local waterways and habitats in this environment.

The most common discharge into our storm drains from concrete construction of residues and contaminants from washing down equipment such as concrete trucks, pumps, mixers, chutes, hand tools and wheelbarrows.

In this regard, a high potential for pollution of urban runoff, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has intensified its efforts to keep storm water pollution prevention plans are compatible with the National Pollution Discharge Elimination System. All of these essential criteria are part of the U.S. Clean Water Act and mandates the use of best management practices (BMPs) on construction sites. Potential emissions of the storm drainage systems from concrete work has become a priority of federal and state EPA, water quality control officials, regional and local inspectors, as well as the strategic goal of advocacy and environmental groups. Illegal discharges into our waterways can bring a fine of $ 32,500 per day if the U.S. EPA is involved.

Polished Concrete Process

Posted on: January 25th, 2018 by

Polished concrete is strong, durable and low maintenance while having that earthy texture of stone with a polish equal to granite. Here is how it is done.

It is similar to traditional polished terrazzo which is very flat and poured as a special mix to make the finish more successful. Polished concrete floors can also look almost bumpy and have little or no aggregate showing. Flatness and polishing are not necessarily the same thing which is a good point to clear up before agreeing to your project.

It costs extra time and diamond wear to cut floors with a concrete grinder until they are flat. They can either be ground flat to fully expose the aggregate like terrazzo, or the aggregate can be partially exposed, or the concrete grinding can expose no more than the fine sands at the surface. It often takes skill and experience to control the process of polished concrete floors and the quality of the concreter’s original laying work is also a contributing factor in the quality of the finish. Where the aggregate is a feature special materials can be added to the wet concrete mix such as coloured pebbles, metals and glass to enhance the final appearance.

Most people are unaware that there are ten to fifteen steps for polished concrete floors which takes a long time to complete and can be quite expensive.

Typically it takes many grinding passes to finish a highly polished floor although there are other ways as explained later. The general rule is to double the diamond grit size under the concrete grinder for each pass so a contractor might start with very coarse, 16 or 32 grit size diamonds, then use 60 grit diamonds followed by 120, then start again with a 50 grit diamond resin pad instead of a metal segment. Using the resin pads the steps may be 100, then 200, 400, 800, 1500 and finally 3000 grit. That would be ten separate grinding passes which does not count the two other essential steps.

Two more essential steps:

1. Hardening the surface

Polished concrete floors usually have the surface hardened with a chemical before the second, third or fourth grinding pass. The chemical soaks into the floor to a few millimeters (up to half an inch) and causes a chemical reaction to take place that makes the floor harder and easier to polish to a high finish. These floors are very strong and durable without having a surface coating.

2. Filling holes

After the first concrete grinder pass removes the top layer of concrete paste it will expose millions of tiny air holes. If these are not filled before the hardening process then the final polished concrete floor will show these unsightly imperfections. The holes are usually filled with an acrylic tile adhesive type of product mixed with either the grinding dust or cement powder which is hand scraped across the floor using a trowel. The preferred way to fill the holes is to spray the acrylic adhesive ahead of the grinder so that the diamonds mix it into the holes with the grinding dust on the third or fourth pass at around 120 grit. This method is faster and the dust matches the colour of the floor to hide the holes better than when using cement powder.

Very flat or slightly bumpy polished?

Some floor grinder machines are designed to produce a very flat floor by cutting off the high spots while some others are designed to follow the contours of the floor more. If the surface is to be polished without necessarily exposing the aggregate then only the finer resin pads need to be used on a concrete grinder that allows for movement of the pads so they can follow the contours of the surface. This will result in a polished floor without showing the pattern and texture of the exposed aggregates within the concrete which is faster and less expensive. Hardening can still be an advantage to help the durability of the surface and to produce a final gloss.

Problems with exposed aggregate

Sometimes the finish of exposed aggregate can be uneven if the mix of concrete was poured unevenly or finished off poorly. Boot marks or kneeling board marks can appear suddenly because they have pushed the aggregate down further which might require grinding down another two or three millimeters (quarter of an inch) which will cost more than was quoted. Grinding this far may not be what the customer wanted either so it can be a risk.

Single head or multiple head machines

Original terrazzo grinding was done with single head floor grinders until the production of three-head planetary machines. Planetary means that each head turns one direction while the turntable that houses the heads turns independently in either the same direction or the opposite direction. Some grinders can vary the direction of both the turntable and the heads and some can vary the speed of each. There are also multiple head planetary machines with four or more heads.

The planetary heads can follow the contours better than single or twin head grinders and are faster to use with less effort due to eliminating the requirement to physically move the grinder from side to side or in a circular motion. Single head terrazzo grinders should be moved in a circular motion to avoid grinding lips or shoulders.


As with wood floors the edges must be finished separately to the main floor area because the large machines may bump and damage the walls if they are used too close. For the first grinding passes a nine inch angle grinder is used having a diamond wheel attached with a dust extraction shroud fitted to remove the dust. The sit-down-to-use edge grinders are more controllable than stand up grinders while kneel-to-use grinders have good control, but are exhausting.

After the first two or three cuts a different dust extraction shroud with a corner feature is used with a seven inch polisher or a five inch, multi speed grinder to polish with resin pads and get tight into the corners.

Simple polished concrete floors “look”

The number of processes for polishing concrete can be reduced by up to 60% and still achieve a similar appearance by grinding and then coating with a clear sealer. The first step is to grind with 30/40 grit diamonds to expose the aggregate, then fill all the small air holes as described above (in 10 to 15 steps….) before a second grind with 60/80 grit or 80/100 grit diamonds.

This will produce a smooth enough surface to coat with a sealer. Polyurethanes are very hard sealers with a high gloss and can be purchased as UV stable to stop yellowing (usually double the price of non UV stable urethanes), clear epoxy sealers are not as smooth and will chalk and deteriorate if exposed to sunlight and acrylic sealers have a much shorter lifespan due to their poor resistance to wear. Two coats are necessary to provide a high gloss level.

Different ways to achieve “polished concrete”

The first is to cut the floor with coarse diamonds until all the high spots have been removed to produce a flat floor and then use all of the 12 to 15 steps to eventually polish it or as it is sometimes called, hone it. This is the true polishing system.

A variation of the above is to cut perhaps half of the height of the higher peaks by starting with a medium coarse diamond grit and proceed through to polishing using a machine that can ride up and over small rises.

A third alternative way of producing a honed surface is to start with relatively fine diamonds and simply polish to top of the surface after hardening without removing much of the top cement paste. It is easier to do this when the floor has been laid flat and smooth.

Lastly, a “polished look” can be obtained by grinding with coarse diamonds and then fine diamonds before coating over with a clear sealer.

Only truly polished floors will retain their gloss with little maintenance because all coatings scratch with wear and lose their high shine. Special buffing pads on a standard floor polisher that contain very fine diamonds can be used to maintain cleanliness and the high gloss levels of true polished concrete. Janitors can be provided with these and keep the floors in great condition without special treatment.

Some hire companies provide the grinding equipment for do-it-yourself concrete polishing and have all the pads for the purpose. This may not be so economical though because the pads may be only half worn when you finish depending on the area involved.

Concrete Protector For Your Concrete Surfaces

Posted on: January 14th, 2018 by

During the past few decades, the protection of concrete floors has shifted to a fairly sophisticated process of protective coating or surfacing. The main aim is to provide clear weatherproof protection against deterioration caused by gasoline, oil, de-icing salt, grease, weathering and efflorescence (white, powdery, salt-like deposits visible on surface). Efflorescence occurs when moisture moves through surface. And, the moisture picks up minerals, carries them to the surface and leaves them behind in the form of tiny crystals on the surface as it evaporates.

Concrete Protectors: Why Use Them?

The main reason to use a concrete protector is to restore and beautify existing surface. Cleaning concrete periodically will provide protection to the surface from deterioration or contamination, and provide some benefits such as chemical resistance, physical performance, aesthetics, wear, and a myriad of other benefits. You can also consult your manufacturer for an expert advice and see samples of various finishes achieved by surface cleaners, polishers and protectors.

How much maintenance is required?

Mostly all surfaces, when coated with a concrete protector, are resistant to stains, dirt and grease. Still, they need occasional cleaning to look their best. Ask to have a cleaning and maintenance procedures and life-time performance expectations before committing to a surface care regimen. Concrete floors are susceptible to wear and abuse. They are also subject to abrasion and chemical attack. It’s for this reason that all concrete needs some sort of protection. Some recommend protecting surfaces annually, depending on the amount of traffic they receive and whether they are exposed to freeze-thaw conditions.

Be sure to check with the manufacturer for recommendations as to the appropriate cleaner to use for a particular application and to verify compatibility with the cleaner. Not all cleaners are suitable for exterior use. The flooring expert can guide the owner in application, long-term performance, thereby reducing the overall cost of floor-maintenance. To keep maintenance manageable, you will need to choose the right cleaner. For instance, for cleaning a walkway, you need a coating that repels grease and oil and prevents water penetration.

As flooring evolves to meet changing tastes and needs, so must the products and procedures used to enhance the beauty of surface. Although recent innovations such as concrete protectors have made floors easier to clean, they have also met both beauty and budget standards. A concrete protector, can give lackluster concrete a decorative makeover or restore it to like-new condition at a fraction of the cost.

Concrete Solutions With Australasian Concrete Specialists

Posted on: January 12th, 2018 by

Concrete is a word that has been derived from the Latin word “concretus,” which means compact. Concrete is a special mixture made with cement and other materials like aggregate and fly ash mixed with water and chemical bonding agents. For concreting to be done right, people usually go to the concrete specialists. They are the people who are well trained in concreting methods and materials. Australasian concrete specialists are experts in this field.

The Concrete And Its Specialists

Driveways, patios, pool front, garage pathway – all these are to be concreted just right to give the home a nice and fine look. Today concrete is not just boring and grey. It comes in different colors and patterns. They can be custom-colored and patterned to suit the needs of the clients. Spray paving is something new and unique to the concrete world. It is a technique where a pattern is sprayed on to the ordinary concrete, when it’s set, to give it a whole new appearance. Spray pave material can also be applied on to old concrete surface.

It’s actually polymer cement that is made in such a way that it can be directly applied on to the concrete. The resurfacing done with spray pave is durable and slip-proof, which is ideal for any surroundings. It also allows a person to have any kind of design sprayed on. Therefore, the options available with this method of concreting are almost unlimited. This method of concreting is a part of the decorative concrete arena. The other methods of decorating on concrete are stamped concrete, acid staining, and polishing. Stamped concrete is actually patterned concrete. It gives the concrete a completely different look. The concrete can be made to look like stone, bricks, or other material when it is stamped.

Whatever may be the method of concrete used, unless done by the experts, it can go terribly wrong and spoil the entire look of the area. This is where the concrete specialists come in. The specialists are experts in concrete and can give solutions to any concrete problem. The Australasian concrete specialists come to your homes and do the magic. They pave the path or concrete the driveway just the way the client requests and make sure there is no room for error. They are trained in all the new concreting materials and methods. They can advise the client as to what would suit best in the given area and circumstance. These specialists also can help to reseal concrete. Resealing is required to maintain the concrete. This can be done every two or three years. It is always better to call on the professionals to do the resealing.

Australasian concrete specialists are there to help people who want to give their homes a completely different look without too much cost. They convert a very ordinary driveway or entrance pathway into a beautiful place which would be the envy of the neighbors.

Australiasian Concrete Specialists are available online at They specialize in mostly home concreting and give the homes a totally fresh look.
