Concrete Protection and Repair in building construction

Nothing lasts forever!  Because of architectual and economical reasons  it is common practice to try to bridge the largest possible spans with constructions as slim as possible . As generally known concrete structures can only fulfill their tasks if the concrete structure is homogeneous and free of defects, the reinforcing steel is sufficiently covered  and the concrete has sufficient alkalinity. Concrete protection and repair in building construction becomes necessary because of fails caused by:

  • Chemical attack by corrosive  atmospheres
  •  too high structural stress
  • Missing concrete coverage
  • Weak concrete
  • designing and application faults
  •   thermal load

IPA Concrete Protection and Repair Systems

DIN EN 1504-9 (Products and systems for the protection and repair of concrete structures)  –describes 9 principles and systems for repair and protection of concrete.
IPA Concrete Protection and Repair Systems
include impregna­ting, sealing and coating systems; IPA Rehabilitation Systems extend to exposing possibly corroded reinforcement bars, their treatment and protection, applying mortar, patching and final protection by applying a water-repellent coat.

Concrete protection and repair  – a topic that will play an increasingly central role in the upcoming years. The larger the old stock of buildings, the more comprehensive the need for renovation.
