How to use Crackamite®

Temperature Check the material and water temperature

election Select appropriate grade of Crackamite

Hole Design Design the hole pattern according to the job site

Pre-drilling Drill holes in the material according to the hole design

Mixing Make the required quantity of Crackamite mixture

Filling Fill the pre-drilled holes with the Crackamite mixture

Cracking Wait for the material to develop cracks


Always start by matching the temperature of the material to be cracked with the temperature range of the grade of Crackamite. Also, match the temperature of the water with the grade of Crackamite you are mixing. (Ref - Table 1)

Temperature Estimation

As shown in the figure on the right, place a thermometer in the bottom of the hole and leave it in place for 2-3 minutes. Then quickly pull out the thermometer and take a reading. Avoid taking temperature right after drilling since the temperature of the hole is higher because of friction heat.
