DIN EN 1504 states clear requirements for concrete repair work and for the protection of concrete elements against corrosion. These requirements lay a firm foundation for reliable, standardized work on construction projects. To ensure full compliance with the statutory requirements, the entire PCI product range is regularly reviewed and steadily developed. But when is corrosion protection required for reinforcement steel concrete? As a general principle, each new reinforced steel building must be equipped with a coating to provide protection against corrosion. The coating needs to be renewed if the reinforcement steel has already corroded, surface layers are severely damaged or stress in the building component has damaged the concrete.

Innovative PCI products to protect reinforcement steel from corrosion

In order to achieve satisfactory results, it is essential to inspect the substrate and to ensure that it is sound before applying corrosion protection products. If the quality of the substrate is adequate, you can either use PCI Legaran® RP or products from the PCI Nanocret® family. PCI Legaran® RP is a mineral corrosion protection product for reinforcement steel in indoor and outdoor applications which has been de-rusted. It is important to apply the coating in 24 hours after cleaning. If severe fluoride exposure is expected or critical substrates need to be treated, we recommend PCI Nanocret® AP. This product can also be used as a bonding slurry for the application of repair mortars. The active inhibitors provide local cathodic protection against corrosion for the reinforcement steel.
