All about concrete repair and protection

Structures that combine steel and concrete are one of the most widely used construction solutions as they are present in most buildings. Molins has solutions that protect and repair both elements in an integral treatment, thixotropic or fluid mortars, even for aggressive environments, reinforcement treatment, corrosion inhibitors and bonding bridges to improve adherence.


More about Concrete repair and protection

Despite the good performance of many reinforced concrete structures, it is important to bear in mind that, like any other material, it ages, so proper maintenance is essential. Corrosion or carbonation and subsequent cracking are some of the main causes of its degradation. In this sense, the repair of concrete comprises five basic operations ranging from the digging and cleaning of the concrete and steel surface, to the protection of the reinforcement (passivating, corrosion inhibitor), bonding bridge, filling with a repair mortar and the protection of the final surface with an aesthetic mortar and protective finishing paint.

To carry out this repair and protection treatment process, Molins has a whole range of quality products that enable the aesthetic and structural characteristics of concrete to be re-established, thus guaranteeing its durability and increasing maintenance times. In this range, we have mortars for repairing and plastering concrete, repair mortars for structures such as stairs, pillars, façades, or for aesthetic repairs of prefabricated parts. We also have coatings or protective, inhibiting and anticorrosive products, which are essential for these structures, which tend to rust as they are exposed to the elements. Molins solutions can be used to rehabilitate elements that have rusted due to carbonation or corrosion caused by freeze-thaw cycles, aggressive environments, environmental pollution, etc. The advantage of Molins solutions is that they can be used on both exterior and interior elements, and are highly adherent to concrete and harden quickly. In addition, they are resistant to water and weathering, which makes them ideal for these jobs, as they have the perfect characteristics to effectively repair concrete. We also have within this range, specialised products called TECHNO, which solve several steps at the same time from the treatment of reinforced concrete, passivation of reinforcement, to repair and protection. Therefore, we are talking about an extensive and versatile range, with products for each specific case of concrete repair that allow great results to be obtained in a simple way.
