Protectosil® Corrosion Protection

Extended Service Life for structures

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. 

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 - corrosion protection additive for dry mortar formulations, especially concrete repair mortar for corrosion protection of reinforced concrete.

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.

Protectosil® DRY CIT is a white free-flowing powder, especially suited for the corrosion protection of structures such as parking decks, facades, balconies, walkways, piers, bridge decks, beams, columns, and other steel reinforced concrete structures.
