  6. 6. 6 F‑R‑PG13 ©2013 Simpson Strong‑Tie Company Inc. (800) 999-5099 | strongtie.com Because each jobsite presents a unique challenge, your local Simpson Strong‑Tie representative is available to help you evaluate the condition and develop a customized product selection and repair plan based upon: • Type of failure • Physical access considerations • Downtime or in‑service time requirements • Budget • Site considerations 1. Assessment Before initiating any RPS plan, it is imperative to conduct a thorough evaluation of the substrate or structure to be repaired. Many factors can contribute to the deterioration of concrete and masonry structures, including poor worksmanship or design, cracking, embedded-metal corrosion, delaminations and others. Properly assessing the deterioration and its cause should involve a qualified engineer who can determine if the design capacity of the structure has been impacted and what implications it may have on the repair strategy. Other factors to consider are access to the repair site, time to complete the repair, impact on operations, budget and others. A thorough assessment of all factors will help develop the best repair strategy for the building owner. Repair, protection and strengthening of concrete and masonry is a complex procedure that presents unique challenges on every jobsite. Following the four-step process of assessment, planning, preparation and execution increases the likelihood of an efficient, successful repair. General Principles 2.

  8. 8. 8 F‑R‑PG13 ©2013 Simpson Strong‑Tie Company Inc. (800) 999-5099 | strongtie.com In order to effectively assess, plan, prepare and execute a successful repair, protection and strengthening (RPS) strategy for concrete and/or masonry, it is important to understand the root cause of the deterioration. Understanding the service conditions of the structure and matching the appropriate product(s) to the performance requirements of the project will ensure a lasting repair tailored to the specific needs of the owner. The two main factors that influence concrete performance are: • Placement Issues (this page) • Service Condition Issues (see p.9) Concrete failures can be the result of a combination of placement and/or service condition issues. Cracking, spalling, leaking, premature or excessive wear, scaling, settlement, deflection and disintegration are examples of conditions that lead to concrete failure. Understanding these failure modes and their root cause is necessary to develop a successful repair strategy. Placement Issues Proper concrete placement is essential to not only satisfy the design and service requirements of the structure, but also to reduce the potential for premature deterioration and reduction of expected lifespan. Identifying defects in the assessment stage of an RPS project is important in order to develop the proper repair plan to address the specific cause of the damaged concrete. One of the most common defects in concrete is cracking. Cracking can be caused by inadequate substrate or sub- base preparation, high water-to-cement ratio, improper curing methods, poor concrete consolidation, timing of control-joint installation and many other placement factors. Cracking can also be caused by design-related issues such as inadequate reinforcement or insufficient control-joint spacing. Excess water increases the water-to-cement ratio of concrete and increases workability; however, this benefit is not without cost. The additional water eventually evaporates in the hydration (curing) process, leaving a porous network of capillary voids and lower overall strength. Excess water can also lead to segregation, or the settling of large aggregates to the bottom of the matrix, resulting in reduced structural capacity and increased likelihood of cracking. Proper curing involves maintaining an adequate moisture content and temperature in freshly placed concrete to allow for full hydration (curing) of the cement while the concrete develops its intended design strength. The absence of moisture stops the hydration process which can lead to lower strengths. Rapid moisture loss of freshly-placed concrete can also lead to plastic shrinkage cracking, which are random shallow cracks on the surface of the concrete. Poor consolidation can result from improper vibration and/ or poor mix design. If the concrete does not fully consolidate around the reinforcing steel, design capacity may not be reached, and cracking can result. Concrete expands and contracts with temperature changes. When these contraction forces exceed the tensile strength of the concrete, cracking can occur. To influence where this cracking will occur, control joints are installed, but the design and timing of control-joint installation are vital to their effectiveness. Reinforcing steel (rebar) is used to increase the tensile strength of concrete. When tensile forces acting upon a concrete element exceed its tensile strength a crack may occur. Reinforcing steel controls the width of the crack and can prevent complete failure of the element. Causes of Concrete Deterioration When planning an RPS strategy for deteriorated concrete, one must consider and address the following in‑service factors: • Environmental conditions • Chemical exposure • Exposure to water and mobile debris • Concrete properties (strength, type, aggregate, etc.) Common placement issues with concrete: Bug Holes Cause: Entrapment of air bubbles on the formed concrete surface. Effect: Uneven concrete surface, increased porosity due to increased surface area, and poor appearance. Rock Pockets Cause: Improper consolidation between large aggregates and cement mortar during the placement process creates large voids in concrete. Effect: Reduction in strength and increased potential for water intrusion, corrosion of reinforcing steel and reduced abrasion resistance. Honeycombing Cause: Improper consolidation of concrete due to lack of vibration or improper mix design. Effect: Reduction in strength and increased potential for water intrusion, corrosion of reinforcing steel and reduced abrasion resistance. Cold Joints Cause: Delays in concrete placement where the initial lift of concrete hardens before subsequent lifts are placed, resulting in a visible lineation and substandard bond between layers. Effect: Water intrusion through the cold joint and corrosion of reinforcing steel.

  9. 9. 9F‑R‑PG13 ©2013 Simpson Strong‑Tie Company Inc. (800) 999-5099 | strongtie.com Chemical Attack Causes: Exposure to acid rain, de-icing salts, in-service chemicals and naturally occurring sulfates in soils and ground water dissolve the cement matrix which results in aggregate loss. Effects: Loss of concrete cover and subsequent corrosion of reinforcing steel. Assessing potential exposure before construction or repair can prevent premature deterioration. Specific cement types, water-repellent sealers or chemically-resistant barrier coatings are all common preventative measures to protect concrete against chemical attack. Alkali-Aggregate Reaction Cause: A chemical reaction between the alkali in cement and high-silica content aggregate forms a gel around the aggregate, preventing proper bond between the aggregate and cement. Effects: The gel expands in the presence of water, creating tension cracking around surface aggregate and delaminations. Surface cracking promotes water intrusion which can lead to metal corrosion and spalling. Careful selection of aggregates and consideration of silica content can help prevent alkali- aggregate reactions. Erosion/Abrasion Causes: Airborne or waterborne debris moving across the concrete surface. Effects: Progressive section loss can lead to inadequate concrete cover and corrosion of the reinforcing steel, reducing structural capacity. High-strength, dense concrete and specialty abrasion-resistant coatings are the most effective means to resist erosion and abrasion. Service Condition Issues Common service condition issues with concrete: Corrosion of Metals Causes: Chloride intrusion, oxygen-water exposure, corrosive chemical environment surrounding reinforcing steel, drop in alkalinity, improper rebar placement. Effects: Corrosion and subsequent expansion of reinforcing steel leads to cracking and spalling, reducing the structural capacity of the concrete. Using concrete with a low water-to-cement ratio and proper rebar placement with adequate concrete cover are common measures used to prevent metal corrosion. Freeze-Thaw Causes: Water-saturated concrete, combined with temperature cycling above and below 32°F (0°C). Effects: Concrete absorbs water into its pores. When the water in the pores freezes, it expands, causing scaling and delaminations. High-strength concrete mix designs that incorporate air-entraining admixtures yield the best defense against freeze-thaw damage. Specialty coatings and water repellents are also commonly used to minimize water absorption and prevent freeze-thaw damage. Repair, Protection and Strengthening Systems for Concrete and Masonry

(800) 999-5099 | strongtie.com Repair, Protection and Strengthening Systems for Concrete and Masonry CrackRepair ETI ACCESSORIES The Opti‑Mix® static mixing nozzle is specifically designed for crack injection epoxies and ensures thorough mixing of epoxy components. For use with both low‑viscosity and gel‑viscosity ETI formulations. Flow regulators ensure that resin and hardener flow at equal rates and prevent mixed epoxy from flowing back out of the nozzle into the cartridge. This ensures thorough mixing and prevents mixed product from curing in the neck of the cartridge, causing blockage. EMNO22 Opti‑Mix® Mixing Nozzle E‑Z‑Click™ Injection System The E‑Z‑Click injection system is comprised of a specially designed fitting and ports that take the mess out of your repair project while allowing you to work faster. The E‑Z‑Click injection fitting installs onto the end of the Opti‑Mix mixing nozzle and clicks onto the E‑Z‑Click™ ports during injection. Maximum installation pressure of 150 psi. • Positive connection eliminates messy leakage, minimizing waste and clean‑up • No drilling of ports: E‑Z‑Click ports perform while pasted to the surface of the concrete. No drilling required for most applications • Disconnect the fitting from the E‑Z‑Click part and the epoxy stops flowing, no leaky mess • After injecting, pull the head of the E‑Z‑Click port out to close it and prevent leakage • One person can work faster without having to hold the tube on the port EDT22S Manual Dispensing Tool for 1:1 and 2:1 Adhesive Cartridges The EDT22S epoxy adhesive tool features a steel carriage and is engineered for high-volume, continuous use. The tool can be easily converted from dispensing a 20 or 22 oz. (570 or 650 mL) 1:1 ratio cartridge to a 16 oz. (475 mL) 2:1 ratio cartridge. EDTA22P Pneumatic Dispensing Tool for 20 and 22 oz.
