Concrete cancer

What is concrete cancer or Concrete Spalling?

Concrete Cancer or Concrete Spalling is a common problem in all coastal regions, such as the Gold Coast, Tweed Heads and Coolangatta. The climatic conditions of a coastal environment expose concrete to contaminants which accelerate corrosion of the steel reinforcement. This causes the steel to expand, displacing the concrete around it, causing it to become brittle and crack thus accelerating the spalling process.

Common signs include – 

  • Crazing and cracking concrete (concrete spalling)
  • Rust stains which seem to leak out from within the concrete
  • Bubbling (also called Plating) of concrete render
  • Leaks which appear in overhead concrete surfaces

Our patners Condok Remedial provide a guide to identifying Concrete Cancer, which can become apparent in a number of ways.
