Concrete needs preserving: advanced innovations in effective and long-term concrete protection
Each day our concrete is faced with changing environmental conditions, carbon dioxide, chloride attack and other corrosive elements, leaving our structures vulnerable to damage and deterioration.
Once the concrete loses its protective properties it is only a matter of time before corrosion becomes a major problem. Cracks and damages to the concrete expose the steel reinforcement of the structure to water, chlorides and other aggressive influences, leading to accelerated cracking and spalling of the concrete, threatening its long-term service life and structural integrity.
Master Builders Solutions from BASF offers a complete range of concrete protection products, water repellants, anti-carbonation coatings (elastomeric & high build) and chemical resistant coatings that form a defense barrier against the ingress of any contaminant. Our experts connect with customers to identify the most effective protective corrosion control solution for maintaining the concrete’s lifecycle, enhancing the value of the structure and restoring its original aesthetics and design function.
