Why is Concrete protection necessary for industrial areas?
Concrete substrates also need a resistant coating for a trouble-free operation. The belief that concrete could permanently withstand aggressive chemical attacks or heavy weather conditions without protection is a false conclusion. As a matter of fact, air pollution and resulting acid rain induces by contained sulfur dioxide the corrosion of concrete. By enduring contact with chemicals or aggressive substances, concrete is destroyed in different ways. The sulfate attack causes expansion effects. The sulfuric acid attack effectuates extreme concrete erosions. Also anaerobe microorganisms (sulfate reducing bacteria - SRB) provoke fatal concrete erosions by the excretion of hydrogen sulfide. Fluids and gases, which ingress into the porosities of the concrete, can cause corrosion on steel reinforcements.
The primers and following coatings of Chesterton International GmbH are applied onto clean and blasted concrete. Due to the low viscosity of the products, all porosities are easily filled in and an outstanding adhesion is thereby achieved. The application is conducted by an airless spraying method or simply by roll and rake.
