Protectosil® products for corrosion control increase the service life of buildings, reducing maintenance cycles and cost.
Over time reinforcing steel can corrode and rust, leading to a weakening of the structure if expensive repairs are not undertaken. The key to successful protection of valuable building structures is to stop water and chloride ions from entering the substrate.
Corrosion Control products
Protectosil® CIT does the job. In the case of already corroding structures Protectosil® CIT is the ideal solution. Protectosil® CIT builds a deep and long-lasting barrier because it penetrates deeply into the substrate, hydrophobizes the concrete and passivates the steel rebar. Protectosil® CIT effectively reduces corrosion under the conditions of the ASTM G-109 procedure.
CORROSION PROTECTION ADDITIVES AS CONCRETE ADMIXTURES
Protectosil® WA CIT protects especially steel reinforced concrete, shotcrete and prefabricated concrete elements against chloride induced corrosion. The product is homogeneously distributed throughout the concrete and reduces its drying shrinkage.
CORROSION PROTECTION ADDITIVE FOR DRY MIX MORTAR
Protectosil® DRY CIT is a corrosion protection additive for dry mortar formulations, especially concrete repair mortar for corrosion protection of reinforced concrete. It has been honored with numerous awards.
