During the curing process, moisture evaporates from the concrete resulting in shrinkage which produces uncontrollable random cracks throughout the slab. Expansion and contraction from temperature changes will also cause cracking. To prevent the randomness of the cracking, saw joints can be strategically placed to help predetermine the location of such cracks.
Green sawing is done on newly poured concrete, usually between one and six hours for “Early Control Joint Sawing” or 12 to 24 hours for standard wet cut or “General Control Joint Sawing” after the floating and finishing of the pour. Special blades are used to eliminate spalling of the concrete surfaces. Green saw applications include crack control sawing and decorative control joint sawing.
