Protectosil® products protect your investments
Protectosil® building protection products protect buildings from deterioration by harmful influences. Evonik Resource Efficiency offers a range of products for various needs, whether for corrosion and graffiti control, surface protection or for the treatment of buildings with water repellents.
Moisture is usually the main cause of damage and common denominator to many degradation processes that occur in mineral building materials.
Prevention as well as removal of graffiti are done quickly, efficiently and cost-effectively with our Protectosil® products.
Silane-based corrosion protection systems such as Protectosil® CIT protect reinforced concrete structures against damage and deterioration.
Moisture is the root cause of almost all mechanisms that damage mineral building materials. Dissolved salts and pollutants penetrate into the pores via capillary suction. This causes corrosion of reinforcing steel, salt burst and efflorescence. In cold weather conditions further damage is caused by freeze-thaw effects. The porous structure of building materials allows water, and the pollutants dissolved in it, to penetrate easily into the interior of the building. Prevention of water penetration by Protectosil® water repellents protects against, for example, efflorescence and freeze-thaw damage. The superior long-lasting performance of Protectosil® products is the reason that well-known buildings throughout the world were protected with Protectosil®.
