Protectosil® CIT counteracts the corrosion mechanism

Protectosil® CIT is a surface-applied clear liquid that penetrates concrete and provides an organofunctional molecule to inhibit the electrochemical corrosion process between the rebar and the chloride ions, and oxygen and moisture within the concrete.

Protectosil® CIT

  • dramatically reduces the chloride-ion-induced corrosion rate of concrete steel reinforcement
  • reduces corrosion in carbonated concrete steel-reinforced structures
  • is an easy-to-use treatment that penetrates the concrete and chemically bonds with steel, cement paste and other siliceous materials
  • will not discolor or change the substrate’s surface appearance or surface friction
  • effectively inhibits macrocell (mat-to-mat) and microcell (along rebar) corrosion of steel reinforced concrete
  • mitigates corrosion of rebar even in structures subjected to an environment with high relative humidity
  • repels additional water and chloride ions
