Hydro demolition is a concrete removal techniques utilizing high-pressure water to remove deteriorated and sound concrete as well as asphalt and grout.This process provides an excellent bonding surface for repair material and new coating applications.
Hydro demolition can be used for horizontal and vertical concrete removal and surface preparations on reinforced and non-reinforced structures. It is effective on removing concrete from around embedded metal elements such as reinforcing steel, expansion joints, anchorages, conduits, shear connectors, and shear studs. Hydro demolition can be used for localized removals where deterioration is confined to small areas and for large area removals in preparation for a bonded overlay.
