FIXCER SOLUTIONS TO REPAIR
AND PROTECT DETERIORATED CONCRETE

In general, the degradation of concrete is initiated by the oxidation of the iron structure. This occurs when moisture penetrates through the concrete and, on reaching the iron of the structure, oxidises it. The rust causes the iron section to increase in volume, causing pressure from the inside that eventually breaks and detaches the iron cover layer from the concrete.

How can deteriorated concrete be repaired?

The FIXCER solution for concrete repair has 2 phases: PASSIVATE AND REPAIR.

1.— Passivating the irons. Current primers, such as FIX-REPAR ANTI-OXID or ANTI-OXID LIQUID, can be brushed directly onto the rust to stabilise it and thus prevent future corrosion. This method of protection is technically defined as anodic passivation.

2.— Repair to regenerate spalled concrete. It is essential to use mortars that are specifically prepared for this work and that meet a series of very important requirements:    high mechanical strength, controlled shrinkage, a modulus of elasticity as close as possible to that of concrete, and an alkaline nature to protect the armatures. 

Our FIX-REPAR meets these specifications and offers advantages such as: excellent adhesion, very high abrasion resistance and easy workability, even without the use of formwork.

CONCRETE REPAIR

How to
protect concrete

It is highly recommended to apply a protective paint as a finishing layer. It will prevent the entry of moisture into the concrete, its subsequent carbonation and further oxidation of the iron. It is a basic protection measure to achieve maximum durability in our reinforced concrete structures.
