A robust quality control program is not just defined by how few repairs are needed, but also by how well those repairs are performed. This course will provide guidance for the most common minor repairs in precast concrete manufacturing. We will discuss the best materials, tools and techniques that can remedy issues including bug holes, efflorescence and minor cracking. Best practices based on field experience and recognized repair codes and standards will be shared. Proficiency in concrete repair is a crucial component of a thorough quality control system. Information discussed during this course will help you make it look like it never happened.
At the conclusion of this course, you will be able to:
- Identify what materials work best for specific minor repairs.
- Describe recommended techniques to repair bug holes and honeycombing
- Explain how repair area subbase should be prepared based on material and existing concrete age
