Profile on Parking Garage
l Degussa Corp. has published a case history outlining the use of the company’s Protectosil CIT corrosion inhibitor used at the Monroe County, PA, parking garage. Degussa’s Protectosil CIT was chosen to reduce the active corrosion rates and prevent future chloride infiltration into the concrete of the 54,000 sq.-ft of the steel-reinforced concrete structure.
A solvent-free modified organofunctional silane, Protectosil CIT penetrates deeper into the substrate than other corrosion inhibitors on the market, according to the company. Evidence of Protectosil CIT’s effectiveness can be seen in testing that shows steel corrosion rate levels dropping by 91% in the five years following application, according to the company.
