What Does the Cracker Agent Do?

A concrete demolition agent, also known as demolition grout or expandable grout, is a chemical alternative to conventional explosives used in mining, quarrying, or demolitions. Demolition agents or rock-breaking chemicals come in powder forms, which are mixed with water before being added into drilled holes. Once transferred into a pre-drilled hole, the demolition grout expands to produce a force of 18,000 psi. The 18,000 psi force is enough to break rocks, cured concrete, or reinforced concrete.

The CRACKER® is a non-explosive demolition agent manufactured by Adhesives Technology Corporation. This ecologically friendly demolition grout works in numerous fields in the construction industry. CRACKER® works in the following sectors:

  • Rock demolition chemicals are used in rock mining and quarrying, especially in areas where chemical explosives are prohibited or unsafe to use.
  • Expanding grout is also used in marble and granite mining.
  • Demolition chemicals also enhance accuracy when demolishing specific sections of a foundation or concrete structure.
  • It can also work well when demolishing partition walls and other concrete structures.
  • Demolition chemicals are also gaining popularity in digging canals or shafts in rock for water supply networks.
