Drizoro Maxroad for Spalled Concrete Pavement Repairs

Spalled Concrete Pavement Repairs Prepare areas of spalled concrete pavement for repairs to the concrete pavement. Once preparation is completed apply Maxrest Passive. Drizoro Maxrest® Passive, a one-component liquid product, which is ready to use and contains an oxide converter. The Maxrest Passive provides the corrosion protection of the reo / re-enforcing bars and any other steel and iron surfaces against corrosion. Once applied Drizoro Maxrest Passive neutralizes the corrosion process. Reacting quickly with the rust and transforms iron oxide […]

Commercial property maintenance

Commercial property maintenance

Commercial property maintenance Commercial property maintenance shouldn’t be about reacting to large scale problems or emergencies. Instead, a good commercial property managers, have maintenance plan and are on the lookout for potential problems and respond proactively to avoid them getting bigger (and more expensive!). The earlier property maintenance issues are addressed the less likely they are to become nightmares. No one wants to deal with the aftermath of an Opal Tower situation! 4 Important Property Maintenance Issues 1. Concrete Cancer […]

So What is Concrete Cancer in Buildings?

So What is Concrete Cancer in Buildings?

What is concrete cancer? So what is concrete cancer? Freshly poured concrete is a mix is of a highly alkaline nature. The alkalinity helps prevents and protects the rebar steel from corrosion. This is what is concrete cancer. Concrete cancer, over time, develops since the highly alkaline nature of concrete is reduced through water ingress through 2 main processes. carbonation is due to the presence of carbon dioxide in water forming a weak acid which reduces the alkalinity of the […]

Duplex Corrosion Coating System

Duplex Corrosion Coating System

Duplex Corrosion Coating System: How it Works. How it’s Applied. Shivananda Prabhu | August 30, 2018 For a severely corrosive environment, the duplex corrosion coating system ensures an extended productive life for iron and steel assets, along with an extended maintenance cycle. Two corrosion protection methods are better than one. That’s the theory behind duplex protective coating systems, which combine the proven protection of galvanization with the benefits of an additional corrosion protection system, such as polymeric powder coating. Using two coatings, one above the other, can […]

The problem with reinforced concrete

The problem with reinforced concrete

The problem with reinforced concrete The problem with reinforced concrete is the cracks are starting to show. Dean McCartney, Author provided June 17, 2016 3.18pm AEST By itself, concrete is a very durable construction material. The magnificent Pantheon in Rome, the world’s largest unreinforced concrete dome, is in excellent condition after nearly 1,900 years. And yet many concrete structures from last century – bridges, highways and buildings – are crumbling. Many concrete structures built this century will be obsolete before its end. […]
