Cement based, sulfate resistant, crystallized mortar in powder form that can be applied in both positive and negative hydrostatic pressure directions and becomes reactive with water and moisture. Penetrates in depth into the concrete, in reaction with the water, moisture and free lime inside the concrete (old/new) with sulphate resistant cement, chemicals and specially selected fine aggregates in its formula, forms crystals that do not dissolve in capillary voids and pores. As it is resistant to sulphate and reactive, it protects the building against sulphate attacks, water and moisture throughout the life of the concrete, and prevents the iron reinforcement from the corrosion.
Adverse effects od sulphate for concrete:
Sulphate attack is a common form of deterioration and occurs when concrete comes into contact with sulfate (SO4)-containing water. It causes both physical and chemical deterioration in concrete. Sulfate:
- Reduces the strength of concrete
- It causes a hollow structure by losing its impermeability to the concrete. Therefore, it causes corrosion of the reinforcement.
It causes many other problems in terms of aesthetics.
Negative Water Pressure:
- Reinforced concrete buildings for which sulphate causes risks,
- Interior waterproofing of basement walls and grounds
- Exterior waterproofing of water tanks which are not in the ground
- Retaining walls
- Tunnels and subways
- Floors and horizontal joints
- Elevator excavations.
Positive Water Pressure:
- Waterproofing of all kinds of reinforced concrete constructions which are exposed to sulphate and corrosive salts
- Foundations and curtain walls
- Water tanks (positive applications from both inside and outside of the water tanks under the ground)
- Swimming pools
- Irrigation systems and concrete pipes
- Tunnels and vents
