Groove Cutting

Groove Cutting is cutting the laid concrete providing grooves of size 5mm wide and one third of the thickness of the concrete (or as required at site) within 48 hours of laying of the concrete to form bays of 4Mtrs X 4Mtrs using heavy duty cutting machine with diamond cutting wheel and filling of the grooves with  appropriate sealant.

Concrete expands and contracts constantly with changes in the temperature, the moisture content of the air and due to drying of cement which results in shrinkage. The movements result in stress that can cause cracks in the concrete and destabilization of the base.

Uncontrolled cracking can cause an uneven surface, which is subject to increased wear over time and water seepage, which can damage the substrate. Though cracking is almost impossible to prevent, it can be controlled. The use of specific types of control joints helps accommodate the movement of the concrete and avoid long-term damage.

  • Groove Cutting Methodology:

    Providing grooves of size 5mm wide and 25mm deep (or as required at site) to form bays of 4Mtrs X 4Mtrs using groove cutting machine with diamond cutting wheel and filling of the grooves with  appropriate sealant.
