About Concrete Poker
Air trapped in fresh concrete creates a problem, but a concrete poker from eBay provides a great solution. With a concrete poker, users can minimise trapped air to allow maximum compaction of concrete. Concrete pokers feature a head that utilises a vibrating action so the surrounding concrete vibrates. When the cement slurry and aggregate of the concrete vibrates, the mix starts to become fluid, allowing air to form bubbles and rise to the surface and out of the concrete. Depending on the task ahead, concrete pokers can come in either 28-, 35-, 45-, 55-, 65-, 75-, 85-, or 105-mm head diameters. These products may also feature a twist-grip pressure control system so users can operate them with ease. For densely poured concrete, users should consider a concrete poker with abrasion-resistant tubing. Compact cement is a sign of professional work, and a simple tool like a concrete poker can turn any DIY project into an expert result.
