Product Description

In order for concrete to crack, there has to be a tensile stress present, be it applied or induced. Concrete is actually designed to crack, as it is assumed that the steel reinforcement within it resists all of the tension stress within the element. The sight of cracks does cause concern however, and an understanding of what causes them is important when inspecting new works and/or existing structures.
