Corrosion control for a long life of steel-reinforced concrete structures
Surface applied and admixed products for new concrete and restoration projects
Corrosion of steel reinforced concrete structures is a major expense for private and public buildings, bridges or parking decks. This makes it all the more important to prevent corrosion of the rebars, which could undermine the mechanical stability of the structure.
Over time steel-reinforced concrete structures can corrode and lead to expensive repairs. The key to sustainable protection right from the start of construction is to stop water and harmful substances dissolved in water from entering the building material. Protectosil® CIT builds a long-lasting and deep barrier against rust.
Parking garages all over the world are affected by the consequences of water, dirt and salt coming in with vehicles and thus provoking corrosion. The use of Protectosil® CIT was a part of the repair strategy of the Monroe County parking garage in the USA and has provided corrosion protection for over 11 years.
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.
The main deterioration mechanism for concrete decks is corrosion. Protectosil® CIT extends the lifetime of the concrete structure by reducing corrosion and is also suitable for balconies.
Protectosil® CIT actively protects steel reinforced concrete. It reduces active corrosion and protects against the ingress of water and harmful soluble pollutants, even in concrete exposed to high corrosion conditions. Protectosil® CIT provides long-lasting protection.
Many public and private experts estimate the cost of repairing corrosion related damage in billions of dollars per year. Protectosil® CIT protects steel reinforced concrete by interrupting the corrosion mechanism. Even in concrete exposed to high corrosion conditions, Protectosil® CIT has proven its effectiveness.
Protectosil® CIT comes in two forms
Protectosil® CIT - liquid surface applied treatment which can be used on new concrete and restoration projects.
Protectosil® DRY CIT - powder admixture for new construction and repair mortars.
This video shows how Protectosil® CIT works
Protectosil® CIT dramatically reduces the chloride induced corrosion of steel concrete reinforcement via reaction of active material with the cement phase and the steel surface.MORE
