Benefits of using WONDER FISSURE
WONDER FISSURE can be used in an almost unlimited range of applications. It's particularly used for breaking, cutting or demolishing stones, concrete and reinforced concrete. Endless benefits of WONDER FISSURE can be listed against explosives and other methods of breaking, cutting or demolishing.
I. WONDER FISSURE IS A SAFE SUBSTANCE
WONDER FISSURE is not controlled by any legal regulation such as explosives and explosive agents, etc. therefore supervision of trained personnel is not essential. WONDER FISSURE requires no special precautions if kept in a dry place. The product is not sensitive to electrical discharge or currents. Demolition can be easily and safely performed anywhere.
II. WONDER FISSURE IS SOUNDLESS
Unlike the existing methods of demolition by explosives or breaking equipment, WONDER FISSURE does not make any noise, vibration, flying debris, dust or gas. WONDER FISSURE quietly and gradually demolishes rock or concrete with its expansive stress caused by hydration reaction. Rocks and reinforced concrete may be demolished safely without environmental pollution. Furthermore, WONDER FISSURE's expansive stress continues even after crack initiation, the crack opening distance becomes wider as time passes.
III. WONDER FISSURE HANDLES EASILY
No lid (or cap) is necessary after WONDER FISSURE is poured into a hole of rock or reinforced concrete, nor is tamping required as with explosives. WONDER FISSURE exerts its strength in a short time. Due to WONDER FISSURE's strong adhesion and frictional resistance to inner surface of the hole, spurs due to heat-generation (blown-out shot) do not occur when used within the parameters as noted in the conditions. The expansive stress along the hole depth is almost constant except for that near the entrance of the hole. Generally the expansive stress loss from the hole entrance has little effect on the demolition work when hole depth is long.
IV. WONDER FISSURE IS EASY TO USE - JUST MIX IT, FILL IT, CRACK IT
Just mix with water, pour into holes, then it expands to crack. Neither capping with mortar, sand, etc. nor tamping with a bar is necessary after WONDER FISSURE mixed with water is poured into drilled holes in rock or concrete. Using WONDER FISSURE does not require a special license unlike explosives, explosive agents, etc. It is environmentally friendly. It releases no toxic or harmful substances of any kind.
V. WONDER FISSURE HAS AN EXPANSIVE STRESS MORE THAN 11 MT/M2
Generally, the compressive fracture stress of rocks is 500 to 2500 T/m2 and that of concrete 300 to 500 T/m2. However, the tensile fracture stress is very small, i.e., it ranges from 40 to 70 T/m2 in concrete, respectively. Since demolition by using WONDER FISSURE is based on a fracture due to a tensile stress, all kinds of rocks and concrete can be cracked and broken by using WONDER FISSURE when appropriate holes are properly drilled.
VI. WONDER FISSURE DOES SYSTEMATICAL HIGH-EFFICIENCY DEMOLITION WORK
WONDER FISSURE makes it very easy to control the shape of to-be-cracked objects after being broken according to requirements; it can be demolished or can remain unharmed. WONDER FISSURE cracks reinforced concrete, rock, limestone, granite and marble safely and quietly. Being a non-explosive material, it works without noise, vibration, dust, toxic gases and flying rock. Cracked rock or concrete can then easily be broken with breakers remarkably reducing time and cost required for breaking. WONDER FISSURE can demolish rock or concrete systematically, and also demolition work in water is possible.
WONDER FISSURE provides the most technically suitable and cost-effective solution in:
- Restricted demolition of stone and concrete structures where nearby structures must be protected from vibration generated by explosions
- Pre-splitting of stone formations, to create isolated blocks that can then be more easily demolished
- Cutting blocks of marble and granite more economically than that of the traditional wire saw method
- Excavations and demolition of stone or concrete structures where the use of explosives would be expensive due to long operating times, special transport, storage, handling precautions and the need to comply with public safety regulations.
