A section of concrete in a new industrial estate, which was damaged during construction, was restored to its original strength with the help of a Profiler 150, hired from Kennards Concrete Care .
Australian Prestressing Services (APS) used the Profiler 150 to cut a series of 150mm wide, 25mm deep channels to allow the installation of carbon fibre, a heavy duty strengthening system for reinforced concrete.
The profiler 150, which attaches to a mini loader, can be used for milling concrete, asphalt, tiles and mortar.
The profiler 150 cuts up to 150mm wide and, on softer surfaces such as asphalt, to a depth of 100mm per pass.
APS project manager George Sadlik said they tried a couple of different machines before finding the Profiler 150 was the best for the job.
Kennards Concrete Care has hire centres in Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne and Perth.
