Rebar Protector

DRYCRETE™ REBAR PROTECTOR

CONCRETE DENSIFYING SOLUTION with CORROSIVE INHIBITOR

Demonstrates all of the benefits of Moisture Stop, with added compounds to prevent rust development in embedded steel, as well as to halt and further inhibit corrosive agents in existing concrete where there are visible signs of active degradation.

Drycrete™ Rebar Protector offers an environmentally friendly long term solution to protect embedded steel in concrete surfaces, without sacrificing the integrity of the concrete in any way. It provides all of the benefits of Drycrete™ permanent moisture control, with additional ingredients to actively seek out the surface of the internally embedded steel (rebar) and halt corrosive deterioration, while providing a permanent and effective barrier against continued corrosion of the steel.

 

BENEFITS:

  • Exhibits deep penetration - from 3" to 5" or more - based on concrete porosity and/or permeability.
  • Eliminates of greatly reduces soluble chloride without affecting insoluble chloride or reducing pH value.
  • Neutralizes hydrochloric acid & other catalysts needed to promote oxidation-reduction reaction (corrosion).
  • Arrests and / or prevents corrosion on embedded steel.

Easy to Apply

On Existing Concrete
Apply DRYCRETE using a low pressure pump-up tank sprayer with a fan spray nozzle. Holding spray tip 6-8 inches from surface, apply at minimum rate of 200-250 square feet per gallon with an overlapping spray pattern of 10-20%. Begin application at the lowest elevation. For example, walls and slopes should be applied side to side, from the bottom up.
 
As a Cure Method on newly poured Concrete
Apply DRYCRETE with a low-pressure pump-up tank sprayer or by flooding and broom out. Apply to the newly placed surface as soon as is practical following its surface finishing phase. Recommended minimum coverage as a cure method is 150-200 square feet per gallon on textured surfaces or 250-300 SF per gallon on hard trowel finished concrete surfaces.
