Rebar spalling is caused by the exposure of the concrete to high temperatures. Spalling itself is actually the deterioration of the concrete, causing chunks of the concrete to separate from the concrete structure. Some of the most common causes of concrete spalling are high heat, pressure and moisture.
Spall damage can occur from impact but mainly from rebar rusting and expanding inside concrete. The result is ruptured areas of concrete at the location of rusting rebar. Spalling can become a "cancer-like" growth as more and more concrete ruptures and exposes more rebar to moisture.

We service many types of expansion joints:
