Reduction of shrinkage reinforcement
When it comes to watertight structures, the maximum allowed crack-width is determined by water tightness requirements rather than durability requirements. The additional need for crack-width reduction results in a large increase of shrinkage reinforcement. However, when adding Basilisk Healing Agent to the concrete mixture, the water tightness requirements are already being dealt with, reducing the need for shrinkage rebar up to 40%.
Ask us about the case study regarding the reduction of shrinkage reinforcement for a detailed example.
Protection against leakage and corrosion
The environmentally friendly bacteria from Basilisk Healing Agent will autonomously seal cracks with limestone up to 1 mm in width. Due to the compatibility of limestone and concrete, the structure is continuously protected against leakage. Crack-healing protects the reinforcement against corrosion. As a result, the durability of the structure is greatly increased.
Tailor made solutions
We offer our technical support for a custom design of your own self-healing concrete mix or special (spray) mortar. This mix-design will be tailor made and configured according to your project requirements.
