Drymix is solution for CRACKED WALL

Why Wall Cracks ...?

Cracks in the wall of a building must have been often we find and can be a thing that is not surprising, but not everyone knows why or how so the walls might crack. In general, the wider and deeper cracks that occur, the more serious is also handling. If this situation persists check and make sure the first cause of the rift that mitigation can be optimal.

Theoretically, the material making up a wall made from raw materials of natural origin such as red brick or brick, stucco and concrete, is made up of an arrangement of small particles. Naturally, this material actually has millions of subtle cracks and when the movement of both the structure and the surface, these cracks become increasingly apparent.

These cracks can be caused by many things, such as:

The process of expansion material shrinkage
The movement of the building structure
Perkaratan on metal
The use of improper materials


Process Muai Material Losses

Expansion of a material shrinkage caused by the drying process the material, because at the time of construction of a building once used a lot of water, such as the work of casting concrete, brick installation, plastering, painting acian up. Hence, in the process of drying shrinkage will occur. Conversely, if it is a long brick it will be expansion.

Shrinkage cracking due to expansion often occurs in weak connections such as the corners of the window. Other factors that could cause cracks in the wall due to expansion-shrinkage, both during and after construction is weather cycle from hot to cold and vice versa. Avoid wall mounting applications in direct sun and strong wind gusts as it can affect the drying process is too fast to affect the cause of the cracking. When the weather conditions above can not be avoided, provide shade to the work area such as the protection sheeting or the like.



Movement Building Structures

Structural cracks are cracks caused by a shift in the structure of the supporting wall. These cracks need to be aware because if allowed to continue, will have an impact on the robustness of the building. Characteristics is very distinctive, as indicated by the pattern of cracks forming diagonal lines. But there are some cases somewhat different characteristics, ie, fracture lines follow the pattern of brick making.

The main cause is due to a shift in the structure of columns, beams and foundations that support the walls. When the structural columns, beams and foundation shifting or down, the walls that had been silent as if being forced to move and attracted to it here. To avoid this make sure prior to the load carrying capacity of the land to be assuming that the configuration of the structure is designed to be appropriate.


Cracks of this type lead to cracks in almost all building elements, both structural and building partitions.






Perkaratan In Metal

Referred to herein as metal steel as reinforcement of concrete, metal frame, carrying capacity will be reduced if the rusted metals, especially iron as concrete reinforcement are not "covered" perfectly. For those that use steel reinforcement should be covered with a concrete slab with a minimum thickness of 20 mm from the surface. For the purpose of this exposed steel should be galvanized. Cracks caused by rust can be repaired only after rust is removed.






The selection and use of materials that are not appropriate

Selection of appropriate products is something that must be considered before starting to do the job. Mistakes selection and use of the product can affect the results obtained imperfections, one of them cracked. In teritis, compressive strength wall covering material (such as plaster, acian, etc.) must be lower or equal than the maximum compressive strength of the material making up the walls (such as bricks, concrete blocks, etc.) to prevent cracking. Cracks caused this error can be caused by several things, among others:

- Sand with silt content and high organic

- Excess / shortage of cement in the mixture composition

- Excess / shortage of water during stirring

- Preparation and poor substrate material


To avoid the above, Drymix been providing products that are made of appropriate material selection and measurable. Application errors and mistakes can be avoided with the use of the product in the field as a form of periodic monitoring service.

For cracks that have occurred, Drymix product has several options for mitigation, among others:

1. Drymix Concrete Fill (for concrete repairs)

From all that has been mentioned above, the design of the wall type and cover material appropriate for use in a building is important in reducing the occurrence of cracks.
