As concrete hydrates and begins to set, it develops internal stresses. The objective in controlling shrinkage cracking is to relieve these stresses before they seek their own relief in the form of a random crack.
Soff-Cut® has the unique Ultra Early Entry dry-cutting system, which controls random cracking by making the cut at an early stage. The concrete can be cut within the first one or two hours of finishing and before final set.
By minimising the risk of random cracking, this system greatly simplifies the working process, compared to conventional sawing.
