HIGH PERFORMANCE CONCRETE REPAIR
Concrete is strong in compression, but comparatively weak in tension. The inclusion of steel reinforcement improves the tensile strength of the element and, consequently, its resistance to stress. Unfortunately, in the presence of water and oxygen, steel corrodes. Therefore, in almost all likely exposure conditions for reinforced concrete, corrosion of the steel is a potential hazard.
Sika offers a complete range of high performance repair mortars and concrete for applications ranging from cosmetic to structural repairs. Our repair mortars and concrete systems are compatible with a full range of Sika repair and protection materials so that not only the visible signs of damage are repaired, but deterioration is addressed, extending the service life and sustainability of the structure.
