Concrete that easily repairs itself could be the future of Australian structures.
Scientists have found a way for concrete to self-heal simply by adding a particular bacteria to it. By using this bacteria, it can improve the integrity of any structure or road, and ultimately be cheaper in the long run.
Self Healing Concrete
While this new product is natural, it is still in early developing phases. However, it looks as if the future of cement is very promising with this discovery.
- Concrete tends to crack over time, which in turn can expose reinforcing metal bars to corrode.
- Scientists have used bacteria to help repair concrete and make bio-concrete.
- This method of repairing concrete is natural and the supplies and bacteria needed are widely available.
