Concrete Repairs & Coatings
Q-Maint is proficient in asset maintenance and remediation technologies across a range of industries and has successfully completed numerous projects including multi-level façade remediation, spalling concrete remediation on high-rise buildings and civil structures, Defence Force personnel building refurbishment and strategic asset maintenance, high-rise rooftop membrane replacement and heritage listed repairs.
Correct sub straights preparation is a critical part of remediation. This may include mechanical, pneumatic or hydro methods which are subject to environmental conditions. All of these can be used for stripping back dilapidated crumbling surfaces. Ultra high pressure hydro jetting is superior over conventional pneumatic jack hammering or grinding and is significant in the remediation of extreme corrosion or concrete cancer. Advantages include:
•Dust suppression and noise reduction.
•Creation of a superior substrate bonding surface.
•Protects the integrity of assets and avoids additional structural damage
•Selective removal of inferior concrete and minimisation of sound concrete removal.
•Reinforcement steel and tensioning rods are cleaned, de-scaled and not damaged.
•A faster and cleaner removal process than mechanical methods.
•Entrained chlorides are washed away.
•Safety and environmental risks are reduced.
This process accelerates the remediation, protection and maintenance process and provides an excellent etched sub straight giving definite bonding of applied protective coatings.
Our paramount objective and commitment is to provide the best technological advice and solutions to assist our clients in the effective remediation for wide ranging industrial assets and structural elements.
