Concrete by nature is abrasive and varies in hardness. It is a simple building material made up of cement, water, a little aggregate, and steel. Over time, concrete crystalizes which makes it become harder and more brittle. In addition to hardening as it ages, concreate companies between the 1920’s-1960s used sharp aggregates made of granite rock and/or river pebble to make it sturdier. Now and in more recent years, concrete companies have been using smoother-shaped pebble which is less abrasive on diamond wire. However, most demolition projects are bridges, stadiums, and dams build prior to 1960, which requires a strong, sturdy, well-performing diamond wire to cut its hard and sharp concrete and steel.
