3.7 CONCRETE RESTORATION/CLEANING

3.7.1 REPAIR OF DETERIORATED CONCRETE

3.7.1.1 Concrete Removal

Locate all hollow-sounding areas using a hammer.

Saw-cut approximately 10 mm. deep around the perimeter of the


defective areas.

Remove all delaminated or deteriorated concrete cover, taking care


not to crack or otherwise damage remaining concrete.

Where corrosion of the re-bar is visible, remove concrete behind the


reinforcement to a minimum depth of 25 mm.

Remove concrete cover along and behind the reinforcement until a


continuous length of 50 mm. of clean non-corroded re-bar has been
exposed from sound concrete.

Note: Some judgment is required regarding the orientation of cracks


in reinforced concrete. If the cracks are aligned with the main
reinforcement, this is a serious condition. The entire length of the
reinforcement is exposed to oxygen and potential corrosion

Page 61 of 221
REQUISITION NO. 3000599034

When the cracks are perpendicular to the reinforcing steel, the width
of the cracks exposes the steel re-bar to corrosion and severe
pitting locally especially if chloride ions are present.

3.7.1.2 Steel Reinforcement

Grit blast all exposed reinforcing steel to SSPC-SP10 standard


(near white blast cleaning), SA2 or approved equal.

Wash the entire surface with sweet water to remove all dust, salts
etc.

Attached Galvanized XP or approved equal, sacrificial anode units,


to the exposed reinforcement at a minimum of 750mm centers
along/around the repair boundary using the supplied wires. Test the
electrical continuity between Galvanized XP unit wire ties and the
cleaned rebar using an appropriate meter.

Within 30 minutes of blast cleaning, apply epoxy primer to the


reinforcing steel (Ref: NITOPRIME ZINCRICH or approved equal).
The primer shall be compatible with the repair materials used and
special care shall be taken to ensure that the entire surface area of
the exposed reinforcement is treated.

Remove corroded steel reinforcement, which has lost 20% or more


of its cross-sectional area and replace it with FBE coated re-bars.
Reinforcement splicing shall be in full accordance with ACI-318:
1989, Code Section No. 12.15, 12.16 & 12.17. It is essential that all
precautions are taken to ensure that the coated re-bar is not
damaged in any way, even very small damaged areas can lead to
accelerated localized corrosion.

3.7.1.3 New Concrete and/or Cementations Repair Systems

The original concrete profile shall be restored in one of three ways


depending on the size of repair and surface finish required:

A. Small volumes, less than 1.0 cu m, use RENDEROC - TG


Cementations Dry pack Repair System or approved equal, or
B. RENDEROC - LA High Flow Repair Micro-concrete or approved
equal,
C. Larger volumes i.e. greater than 1.0 cu m. use Ready-Mix
Concrete. Ready-Mix Concrete should only be used when
forming the full horizontal cross section of the element to be
repaired.

Cementations Repair Systems shall be prepared and applied in


strict accordance with the Manufacturer's recommendations and
specifications.

Page 62 of 221
REQUISITION NO. 3000599034

Ready-Mix Concrete shall have a minimum compressive strength of


4,000 psi (28 n/sq. mm) @ 28 days. A 10 mm aggregate shall be
used in the concrete mix along with a bonding agent additive (ref:
NITOBOND-SBR or approved equal). In addition, Ready-Mix
Concrete shall meet all the requirements of 09-SAMSS-097 and
SAES-Q-001. The aggregates used shall conform to 09-SAMSS-88.

The prepared area of concrete to be repaired shall be treated as


follows:

Prime the repair area with NITOBOND E.P. or approved equal in full
accordance with Manufacturer's instructions prior to the application
of the new concrete repair. The new concrete repair must be applied
while the adhesive is still tacky (up to 8 Hours max. depending on
ambient temperature) otherwise a second coat must be applied.

If formwork is required, it shall be tight and dimensionally accurate


prior to pouring concrete or flow grade repair mortar. Special care
shall be taken to ensure that all joints in the formwork are fully
sealed to prevent grout leakage.

In some cases it may be more efficient to fill the sealed form WORK
with sweet water and leave to stand for a few hours/overnight rather
than using a bonding adhesive which may set too quickly when
applied during very hot temperatures. The sweet water should then
be drained off and the formwork filled with the new concrete repair.

The repaired area shall be properly cured using sweet water or an


approved membrane curing compound; ref. CONCURE 90 or
approved equal. Timber formwork may be stripped after 24 hours
but may remain in place for 7 to 14 days in order to assist in the
curing process. All sections shall be thoroughly wetted with large
volumes of sweet water immediately after the form WORK is
stripped and then sprayed with an unbroken coating of CONCURE
90 or approved equal. All sections shall be wrapped in plastic sheets
and frequently wetted with large volumes of sweet water.

If structural shoring is used to support concrete elements during


repair, samples of the repair material shall be taken for compressive
testing in order to determine the safe minimum period before the
shoring can be removed. No shoring shall be removed until the
concrete repair has reached a minimum compressive strength of 20
N/sq. mm (minimum 3 - 4 days depending on repair material).

3.7.1.4 Epoxy Resin Crack Injection System

When a crack is stable and not attributable to re-bar corrosion a


crack injection system (ref: Nitokit or approved equal) can be used
to effect a repair. The cracks must be thoroughly clean and free from
dust. Their surface should be prepared by sandblasting or power
brushing. Before the crack can be injected, the surface of the crack

Page 63 of 221
REQUISITION NO. 3000599034

must be sealed and the injection nipples bonded in the correct


locations, 200-500 mm apart. When the surface sealant has cured
the injection process can begin. All WORK must be carried out in
strict accordance with the manufacturers recommendations.

3.7.1.5 Sand/Cement Render

If a sand/cement render is required over the repaired concrete or


elsewhere for aesthetic reasons or otherwise, then it shall be
applied using NITOBOND-SBR or approved equal as a
waterproofing /bonding agent admixture. The surface area to be
rendered shall firstly be cleaned by sandblasting or high-pressure
water jet and then washed down with sweet water and left to dry.
The render area shall then be bonded with a provisional render-key
applied by mechanically spattering the surface with a sand /
cement / Nitobond SBR or approved equal mix, and allowed to dry
prior to applying the plaster. The total plastering application shall be
local to the unaligned surfaces. An appropriate mix design follows:

50 kg Cement
150 kg sharp well graded sand
10 litre Nitobond-SBR or approved equal
Clean water added to adjust consistency ensuring a semi-dry state
for rendering

The rendering shall be mixed using a mechanical mixer. No mixing


by hand will be allowed.

3.7.1.6 Penetrate Sealer

The application of a Silane/Siloxane penetrate sealer (20% solids)


to all exposed repaired areas of concrete or sand/cement render
may continue not less than 14 days after the repairs have been
carried out; ref: NITOCOTE SN 502 or approved equal. The entire
area of the repair, together with all adjacent areas of concrete or
sand/cement render, shall first be grit or sand blasted in order to
remove all latent, traces of mould release agent, curing compound
and any other surface contaminants.

If the DEKGUARD ELASTIC or DEKGUARD-S systems are being


specified for the final paint finish then the NITOPRIME DG primer
should be used as the penetrate sealer.

where applicable.

TOPPING (SEVERAL OPTIONS)

A topping of crushed stone gravel, washed clean, 25/35 mm size, and minimum 5
cm. thick.

Reinforced Concrete screed, pavers/tiles or mortar bed for ceramic tiles etc.
Minimum 4 cm thick.

INSTALLATION

In general the modified bitumen membrane system shall be installed in full


accordance with the manufacturers specifications and installation manuals.

SINGLE LAYER, LOOSE LAID

The Polyflame membrane rolls or approved equal shall be installed with 10 cm side
laps and 15 cm end laps.

The membrane roll shall be run perpendicular to the slope of the roof deck starting at
the low point. All laps in the sheet shall be installed so as to avoid water edges. End
laps must be staggered.

Starting at the low edge of the roof, the membrane shall be unrolled and properly
aligned along the parapet. The membrane should then be stretched to remove any
wrinkles

The membrane will then be rolled back up to the middle of the sheet and the butane
flame shall be applied to the exposed outer surface of the roll, at the perimeter only,
until the surface reaches the proper application temperature (generally 200 oC) giving
a slight sheen.

The membrane sheet shall then be gradually unrolled to create a heat weld between
the membrane and the perimeter of the roof and the cant strip, pressing the
membrane to ensure proper bond.

Page 96 of 221
REQUISITION NO. 3000599034

When this section of the roll has been securely installed re-rolls the rest of the
membrane up to the point of application and begins heat welding in the opposite
direction. If more than one roll is required for starter course, lap ends 15 cm.

Continue installing additional rolls in shingle fashion with 10 cm side laps and 15 cm
end laps which must be staggered. Heat welding should be done at the overlap only
so as to fuse and weld the two layers together.

Seams at overlaps shall be checked for proper weld by running a heated trowel
along the edge of the seam to re-seal all voids in the laps. Seal all edges with the
heated trowel by slightly melting the modified bitumen compound evenly creating a
fully welded seam.

After covering the whole roof area, recheck to ensure that the membrane is fully heat
welded at all laps and around the perimeter of the roof and all roof protrusions.

SINGLE LAYER, FULLY BONDED

Proceed as per Loose Laid first layer for roll handling and overlapping, but torch
fully the membrane onto the deck by applying the butane torch flame to the whole
width of the roll in order to burn off completely the polyethylene foil and melt
superficially the bitumen. A small wave of melted bitumen may appear at the base of
the roll in contact with the deck. To avoid overheating of the bitumen coating, this
wave shall not be more than 1 2 cm.

SECOND LAYER, FULLY BONDED

The bitumen membrane roll shall be perpendicular to the slope of the roof starting at
the low point. All laps in the sheets shall be installed so as to avoid water edges. End
laps must be staggered. All side laps shall be 10 cm and end laps 15 cm.

Side laps of the first layer and of the second layer shall be staggered or crossed, but
in no case superimposed.

The membrane is installed fully bonded onto the first layer by applying the butane
torch flame to the whole width of the roll.

After covering the whole roof area, recheck all seams and laps.

VERTICAL FLASHINGS

The top of the membrane base flashing must be higher than the finished roof level by
at least 15 cm. and/or at least 5 cm. higher than the maximum expected water level.

The upper horizontal joint of the base flashing strip must be protected by a counter
flashing system (metal strip, reglet, counter cladding, concrete structure etc.).

The membrane base flashing shall be self-protected (mineral granules or aluminum


foil).

Page 97 of 221
REQUISITION NO. 3000599034

Sand/cement, fiber, wood or insulation cants strips shall be provided at all wall and
curb type protrusion flashings.

All membranes for flashing details are always fully bonded to primed substrates.

The membrane flashing shall be installed in strips not longer than 1 meter and cut to
the width required for the flashing girth.

Reseal all seams and edges with the heated trowel running it only once along all
joints. Overheating and over melting of the surface bitumen must be avoided.

All external and internal corners shall be cut and shaped using a second reinforcing
piece at the central joint and shall be fully heat welded with resealed edges and
seams as the rest of the flashing.

EDGE FLASHINGS

At flat edges, the edge of the covering board shall be protected by a membrane base
strip extending 10 cm both above and below the board.

A metal flashing shall be mechanically fastened at the edge, extending at least 10 cm


onto the roof and 5 cm below the metal deck level.

The regular modified bitumen membrane roofing system is stopped at the extreme
edge of the roof, fully bonded onto the primed metal plate.

An acceptable ballast retainer (gravel stop) shall be installed at the perimeter of the
roof and around roof drains in the case of covered systems.

OUTLETS AND OVERFLOWS

Each roof or portion of roof surrounded by roof dividers shall have at least 2 No. rain
water outlets, or 1 No. rain water outlet and 1 No. overflow.

To avoid ponding water around outlets, the opening shall be surrounded by a


depression of not less than 1.5 cm deep and a radius of (15 cm + outlet radius).

The rainwater outlet can be designed in two ways:

(a) Prefabricated lead or special rubber or PVC to be installed fully bonded


between two layers of modified bitumen membrane
(b) Cast iron, fixed onto the roof deck, properly sealed with Polyflame or approved
equal welded onto primed metal plate with at least 10 cm overlaps between
metal and membrane.

Outlets and overflows made of normal PVC are to be avoided as proper torch
welding of bitumen membrane onto PVC is impossible.

VENTILATION PIPES AND A/C DUCTS

Page 98 of 221
REQUISITION NO. 3000599034

Pipe protrusions shall receive a flashing system similar to that outlined in Vertical
Flashings above.

They shall be made of steel or other acceptable metal fixed onto the roof deck
through a welded flange.

A/C ducts shall be surrounded by a metallic curb. A counter flashing system shall be

a. Check and remove any loose or flaking texture by using


a stiff bladed scraper. Do not use a flexible filling knife.
Re-tape any joints; fill nail heads and slightly feather
around the edge which is left after removal of texture.

Note: Feather is a term used for filling around the edge


of any patch created by the part removal of a paint or
texture coating on walls and ceilings. Fill cracks and
damaged areas. Large cracks shall be opened to a V
shape to allow the filler to adhere. On areas where

Page 137 of 221


REQUISITION NO. 3000599034

texture was removed, apply texture coating by using a


hopper gun. Check for uniformity and apply more texture
and build-up to match existing.

Materials

Filler: U.S.G. Ready Mixed joint Compound.


Tape: Paper joint tape Similar to SAP 1000188384

B. Coating System

a. When all preparation is complete, apply one coat of


Emulsion Paint to all repaired patches and other filled
areas of wall and ceiling. Allow to dry. Use brush & roller.
Apply one coat of Emulsion Paint to entire area and allow
drying. Check and fill any areas as necessary.

Note: One coat should be sufficient to cover because of


similar color of existing coating. When applying Emulsion
Paint always do the cutting first with a 7.62 cm (3 inch)
brush (above baseboards, around door frames, corners
and ceiling lines, etc) then apply Emulsion paint with
roller to remaining wall and ceiling area. This will
eliminate the patchy brush mark effect which is obtained
by using roller first and cutting later.

CONTRACTOR shall ensure that he provides and makes available on WORK


Site sufficient straps and pipe clamps for installations.

Handling of Cement

Keep containers for solvent cements tightly closed except when in use. Avoid
prolonged breathing of solvent vapors and when pipe and fittings are being
joined. In partially enclosed areas use a ventilating device to attenuate vapor
levels. Keep solvent cements, primers and cleaners away from all sources of
ignition, heat, sparks and open flame. Avoid repeated contact with the skin by
wearing proper gloves impervious to the solvents. Application of the solvents
or cements with rags and bare hands is not recommended: Natural fiber
brushes and other suitable applicators can produce satisfactory results.
Positively No Smoking allowed.
