What is concrete cancer/spalling ?
Concrete cancer AKA concrete spalling, is the term given to the degradation of concrete. There are a few factors which cause concrete cancer , however the most common type of concrete cancer we see on the Gold Coast is caused by the corrosion of the steel reinforcement. In most cases we see, the corrosion to the reinforcement is caused by the lack of concrete cover. The lack of concrete cover exposes the steel reinforcement to the elements causing it to rust and expand. Once the corroded steel expands the pressure builds up causing chunks to break off. If the corroded areas go untreated the rust acts as a conduit causing the rust to spread through the building, creating larger more expensive problems. Eventually the building can get to a point that requires decommission.
