Concrete @ your Fingertips


Poker burn

Dark coloured marks on the concrete surface. Caused by the insertion vibrating poker brusing the formwork (typically timber) face leaving a scar that is then transferred to the concrete cast surface.

To prevent it occuring, avoid poker contact with the form face.
