Protection of the reinforcement steel
Even the smallest cracks can cause enormous problems for the concrete structure. When water and de-icing salts reach the steel reinforcement through these cracks, corrosion will occur. The expanding corrosion products will gradually increase tensile stress and this increased internal pressure will cause concrete to crack even further and becomes more damaged. At that point, these larger cracks make it easier for chlorides and water to penetrate which speeds up the process of corrosion even more.
Basilisk ER7 blocks pores and cracks in the concrete with limestone and therefore stops the reinforcement corrosion process. This treatment increases the durability of the concrete resulting in lower life cycle maintenance costs and less downtime.
