Concrete Protection System

Repairing a concrete structure compromised by one of many possible causes is an activity which requires qualified, competent personnel. Apart from this aspect, there must also be standard procedures available which define the operations so they may be correctly implemented.

General concrete surface protection against weather and aggressive airborne substances

When the surface is only exposed to atmospheric influences and the main damage factors are corrosion and carbonation, it is sufficient to cover the surface with Ceresit cementitious slurries for protecting concrete structures, facades and building interiors as well as mineral substrates. The cementitious slurries helping to reduce the concrete carbonation process.

Protection of concrete bridges

When bridges are inspected, owners evaluate whether the bridge is functional and does its intended job. If the bridge lacks proper safety shoulders, or cannot handle traffic volume, speed, or weight, it is classified as functionally obsolete. Another attribute owners evaluate is whether a bridge is structurally satisfactory or deficient and has a protection against damages and water leakages. Structural integrity is an area where proper implementation of anti-corrosion systems can make considerable impact in extending a bridge’s lifetime. By using Cementitious Slurries from Ceresit the bridges lifetime will be extended.

Protection of concrete walls

 

Repairing concrete structures is many times more expensive than preventive measures such as hydrophobic impregnation. With Ceresit Cementitious slurries for the water-repellent treatment of concrete, it’s possible to prevent repair – and so avoid high costs and consumption of energy and resources. For example, on noise protection concrete walls are under constant exposure to sun, rain, etc.
