General Information

WHAT IS Ribo-crack®?

Ribo-crack® is a highly expansive mortar to demolish and cut rocks and concretes.

Ribo-crack® swells when poured into a hole and deve- lops a pressure higher than 8000 t/m2 on the hole wal- ls, thereby breaking them open.

Ribo-crack® is environmentally friendly because it relea- ses no toxic fumes or harmful substances of any kind. It is non-explosive, therefore supervision of trained per- sonnel is not essential.

Ribo-crack® storage requires no special precautions, provided the containers are not tampered with and are kept in a dry place. The product is not sensitive to electrical discharges or currents.

WHAT IS Ribo-crack® USED FOR?

Ribo-crack® can be used in an almost unlimited range of applications and particularly to break, cut, or demolish rocks, concrete and reinforced concrete when explosives cannot be used for safety reasons.

It is ideal for use in situations where surrounding buildings or other structures would be damaged by flying debris or shock waves.

It maximizes production time, product output and therefore profits, in quarrying and mining as it avoids ore loss or dispersion.

There is no need for shaft or pit evacuation during blasting.

WHERE CAN Ribo-crack® BE USED?

Ribo-crack® can be used on any type of rock formation, concrete, reinforced concrete or tiled structure in:

  • excavating foundations;
  • levelling rocks for road works;
  • excavating trenches for pipe-laying;
  • underground excavations;
  • marine and submarine excavations;
  • removing boulders;
  • demolition of concrete or reinforced concrete poles, towers, walls, wharves, etc.;
  • demolition of foundations;
  • demolition of breakwaters/jetties;
  • demolition of tiled and refractory structures.

Ribo-crack® provides the most technically suitable and cost-effective solution in:

  • restricted demolition of rock and concrete structures where nearby structures must be protected from shock waves generated by explosions;
  • pre-splitting of rock formations, to create isolated blocks that can then be more easily demolished;
  • cutting blocks of marble and granite more economically than with the traditional helicoidal wire-cutting method;
  • excavations and demolition of rock formations or cement/concrete structures where the use of explosives would be expensive due to long operating times, special transport, storage and handling precautions and the need to comply with public safety regulations.
