Protectosil® ensures safety through corrosion control
Corrosion protection with Protectosil® is scientifically proven
Protectosil® products for corrosion control increase the service life of buildings and reduce maintenance costs of steel reinforced concrete.
Protectosil® CIT is a surface-applied corrosion inhibitor for steel-reinforced concrete. The product reduces corrosion by more than 90% and works in high-humidity environments.
Steel-reinforced concrete structures of buildings, bridges, parking and driving decks can corrode and rust over time, leading to expensive repairs. The key to successful protection of valuable building structures is to stop water and water-soluble pollutants from entering the substrate. Protectosil® CIT builds a deep and long-lasting barrier because it penetrates into the material and binds chemically to the concrete.
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.
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 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.
Protectosil® DRY CIT, a white free-flowing powder, is an admixed corrosion inhibitor. Protectosil® DRY CIT has been honored with numerous awards and is the first solid concrete additive for corrosion protection of reinforced concrete.
Protectosil® WA CIT is a waterborne emulsion which is based on a multifunctional silane system specially designed to protect embedded steel rebars against corrosion caused by chlorides.
