Concrete protection is necessary for the longevity of concrete structures and returning damaged surfaces to their original design function. Applying quality inhibitors offers long-term protection and durability to structures. The whole process from chemical stand point is complicated. To simplify: inhibitors penetrate concrete to the core and deposit a protective layer on the steel reinforcement bars. Proxer Construction uses only Environment-friendly products from world-class suppliers such as Sika™ or BASF™. The range of application for corrosion inhibitors is wide but just to name a few:
- Steel-reinforced concrete, bridges highways, parking decks, facades, balconies, walkways, piers, bridge decks, beams, columns exposed to corrosive environments (deicing salts, weathering)
- Vertical and horizontal overhead concrete surfaces
- Marine environments
Inhibitors are water based. This makes them easy to apply by either roller or spray without any concrete removal. They will not form any vapor barrier that will block diffusion. When used prior to concrete coatings, inhibitors provide additional benefits and should be consider a first step for successful concrete restoration.
