Magnesite Flooring Case Study

Magnesite Concrete Cancer

Magnesite Concrete Cancer

When magnesite is exposed to moisture over prolonged periods of time, chloride ions from the magnesite diffuse into the pores of the underlying
concrete slab eventually reaching the reinforcing steel.

As chloride levels in the slab reach the chloride threshold, corrosion of the steel reinforcement will begin to take place, the longer the exposure time to the moisture source, the more aggressive the corrosion of the steel reinforcement.
Corrosion of this nature results in pitting of the steel reinforcement where it loses its cross-sectional area and strength.

Iron oxide deposits also occur, causing expansive forces within the concrete. These forces cause cracking and spalling of the concrete around the corroding steel.
A common name for this type of concrete spalling is concrete cancer.

Signs of concrete spalling were noted throughout various units in manly when Carpet Removal Sydney was on a commercial job site doing a strata carpet removal job this had been caused by water leaking from various sources, saturating the magnesite for prolonged periods of time.
