Protectosil® for parking decks
parking decks need a well-surfaced path for safe Passability
The main deterioration mechanism for concrete decks is corrosion of reinforcement and scaling of concrete.
In parking garages the corrosion conditions are challenging, because water, dirt and salt are coming in with vehicles that causes corrosion and threatens the mechanical stability. Protectosil® products offer excellent long-time protection for new reinforced concrete structures as well as for building materials that have already been affected by corrosion.
The treatment of the Monroe County Parking Garage with Protectosil® CIT was a part of the repair strategy. Annual tests carried out that even in buildings already considerably affected by corrosion, the protection with Protectosil® CIT can effectively inhibit further deterioration.
Protectosil® products for concrete decks are designed to repel water and chlorides, reducing deterioration and increasing surface life. Protectosil® products penetrate deeply the underground to provide a long service life even on wearing surfaces. Because they do not change the skid or slip resistance of the concrete, they are ideal for driving surfaces.
