Concrete Cancer is common in buildings in the Sydney area or areas close to the coast. It is also called concrete degradation which often caused by presence of contaminance, such as if the internal steel or foundation of a building is penetrated with water causing the concrete reinforcement to rust.
Concrete repairs in Sydney is common due to the proximity of the city to the ocean. As salt travels inland to over 100 km, water gets absorbed by the concrete, wherein the internal steel reinforcing is within 25 mm to the surface. This starts the corrosion of the building’s foundation and may result to an expanding force that may blow out or spall the surrounding concrete.
