Bush Hammer For Concrete Surface
Apr 05 , 2021

In order to prepare concrete for adding a coating or even adding a fresh layer of concrete, you need to add heavy texturing in order to increase the surface area and improve the bonding capability. Otherwise your epoxy, coating, or concrete won’t adhere well, leading to time-consuming and costly repairs.

It is considered to use the bush hammering tools to achieve a heavily textured concrete, since it can get the job done quickly and easily. A bush hammer is a masonry tool that has cone or pyramid-shaped points coming out of a flat or curved surface. The tool can either be manual, like at the end of a hammer or as a tool that fits on a floor grinder. A bush hammer is often used in place of scabbling tools or stone flaming while still offering the aggressive profiling needed to prepare a surface for coating or create a non-slip concrete surface. In fact, using a bush hammer is ideal for achieving a concrete surface profile between a four and five.

Bush Hammering is a system used for many years, it gives surface texture to sandstone or concrete both for aesthetic reasons on a vertical surface and health and safety or slip resistance reasons on horizontal surfaces. Bush Hammering consists of a pounding action that develops a textured surface to stone surfaces. The surface is struck repeatedly impacting the material surface too uniformly pit the stone surface and create a rough, weathered texture. This can enhance the natural tonal variations in the material and make the area more ascetically pleasing. Bush hammering can also be used for functional purposes by helping concrete or other floor material to bond better.
