There have been further developments that we will see in the future when it comes to concrete repairs.

Engineers from Ghent University in Belgium have taken the initiative to look into creating a self repairing concrete. The use of super absorbent polymers have the properties of swelling when in contact with water causing the crack to be filled. It then prevents further water from entering the crack to allow for the crack to be sealed. By sealing of a tiny crack, due to the chemical reaction, will prevent the crack from expanding. With such great innovations, small cracks in concrete can be managed before they become a big problem, saving you time and money. The engineers argue that it will not replace the concrete itself but will help in terms of bonding the cracks.
