CCS Style Pave Concrete Resurfacing System
Results of tests conducted on crushing test cubes made from CCS Resurfacing Compound reveal the following typical strengths:
1 Day - 28 MPA
3 Days - 45 MPA
28 Days - up to 79 MPA
The above early, as well as long term strengths ensure a strong, abrasive-resistant finish is achieved.
Expansion joints and existing cracks
As with any concrete slab, it is essential to incorporate expansion joints at regular intervals to enable the slab to expand and contract with variations in temperature.
In addition to expansion joints, it is common to find 'random' cracks in the concrete. Unless treated, these cracks will show through the new surface.
To minimise cracks appearing in the resurfacing compound, firstly repair the original crack and once resurfacing is complete, insert a saw cut above or directly adjacent to the existing crack.
If applied in accordance to instructions provided, the Stylepave Resurfacing System will provide excellent resistance to abrasion. Typical abrasion resistance is as follows:
|Applications||Upper limit for abrasion resistance (mean abrasion index) as per AS/NSZ 4456.9||Average abrasion index of surface finished with CCS Resurfacing Compound*||Result|
|Residential Pedestrian||7||0.9||Loss of abrasion from CCS Resurfacing Compound was very minimal and far exceeds Australian Standards|
*Results of tests by Queensland University of Technology conducted in accordance with AS/NZ 4456.9 Determination of abrasion resistance. Surfaces were finished with a mixture of CCS Resurfacing Compound and CCS Super Polymer 2000 at the rate of 4kg/m2.
