Drizoro Maxroad for Spalled Concrete Pavement Repairs

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 […]

How to Seal Leaking Block Walls in Your Basement

How to Seal Leaking Block Walls in Your Basement

How to Seal Leaking Block Walls in Your Basement So How to Seal Leaking Block Walls in Your Basement. Basement waterproofing has been around since basements have been constructed below ground level and sometimes even below the water table. The basement waterproofing design features are critical as basements are often subject to groundwater (hydrostatic) pressure. Buildings exposed to just to climatic rainfall. The walls of the substructure experience varying levels of hydrostatic pressure. When there is a failure in 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 […]

Concrete Waterproofing with Crystalline Technology

Concrete Waterproofing with Crystalline Technology

Concrete Waterproofing with Crystalline Technology | Reducing Water Permeability into Concrete | Cost savings – Materials Use of Crystalline Waterproofing to Reduce Capillary Porosity in concrete Concrete is a highly important construction and building material. Concrete is porous and permeable in nature. Due to its composition and nature, concrete is often susceptible to damage and deterioration caused by water. The damage caused by water can be significant over time. More often than not concrete waterproofing (crystalline technology) is applied as […]

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. […]

Concrete Cancer Repair Options

Concrete Cancer Repair Options

Concrete Cancer Repair Video Concrete cancer repair is required where concrete spalling and cracking problems caused by steel reinforcement corrosion in buildings and concrete structures caused by the acidification of the concrete. When cancer of concrete or spalling or cracking is noticed in building areas such as concrete balconies, building facades, bridges or wharf structures, often the problem as arisen due to lack of waterproofing and protection from carbonation of the building structure.  Diagnostic analysis by a qualified engineering firms can […]

Waterproofing Concrete is Essential

Waterproofing Concrete is Essential

Waterproofing Concrete is Essential There is a common misconception that concrete provides waterproofing capabilities. This supposition has led to moisture infiltration and structural damage with countless buildings. This misconception has contributed to extensive and extremely costly interior damage. Although concrete in a perfect state will prevent moisture intrusion, there are several potential imperfections to concrete that limit its ability to prevent moisture intrusion throughout its service life. These imperfections can be present at the initial stages of the pour and […]
