Concrete Scarifying

Scarification
 
ICRI Profiles: 5 - 9
Scarifiers are capable of producing ICRI Profiles between 5 - 9
Typically 8" & 12" scarifiers can produce a ICRI CSP profiles of 5, 6, & 7 if a 8 or 9 is required it could can take a very large scarification machine also called a milling machine, this is typically only used for repaving roads.
 
Overview
    Scarifiers, also called surface planers or milling machines, remove high millage coatings, asphalt, and concrete faster and more aggressively than grindersScarifiers are versatile surface preparation tools used for concrete, asphalt and even steel surfaces. Models can be connected to an appropriate dust collection system for virtually dust-free operation. Scarifying can help achieve the proper surface preparation and correct surface profile that is critical to a successful and long lasting coating job, the key to preventing call backs. They are also very useful for preparing problem areas on concrete slabs: over-troweled burned areas, high spots, curled expansion joints, excessive trowel marks, and weather damage, etc. They are efficiently used for transitioning uneven surfaces and trip hazards. The cutters and spacers can be configured on the drum shafts in a variety of ways for other applications, including the cutting of safety grooves in concrete ramps, walkways and loading docks.
 
How it Works
    Scarifiers use the pummeling action of multi-tipped cutting wheels, or flails, that rotate at high speeds to chip away at the surface to be removed. This action leaves the surface well profiled (very rough) and ready to receive a new coating or if needed be we can followup the scarification with diamond grinding to smooth the scarified surface.
