Laitance is a delicate coating of anhydrite and cumulative fine aggregates on a concrete surface standing amid a topical layer and the primary substrate, commonly brought about by: An over-wet mixture, Inappropriate finishing, Overworked mixture, Over trowelling, Rain damage during placing, Subsequent poor curing.
According to John Stanley plastering, the laitance layer thwarts a bond developing in the middle of the topical covering and substrate, and causes its delamination as the laitance layer first fails.
Importance of Laitance Removal
- Clears shrinkage cracks.
- Prevents adhesives and primers.
- Helps in the process of drying out the screed.
Laitance is very fragile to tile on to and therefore if left untreated, subsequent materials have a higher risk of failing. Accurate surface preparation is crucial to any painting project to ensure results are long-lasting. John Stanley Plastering offers the best of these services and ensures your needs are met.
