Faceal Hydro CP
Faceal Hydro CP is the preventive and curative treatment of old concrete, like civil engineering structures, against water, chlorides, carbonation and reinforcement corrosion.
WHAT IS FACEAL HYDRO CP MADE OF AND WHO CAN USE IT?
Faceal Hydro CP is a organo-functional and ready-to-use product, specially designed to reduce corrosion of the existing concrete reinforcement (according to EN 1504 – Products and systems for the protection and repair of concrete structures).
This treatment, for architects AND commercial use, is an exceptional water-repellent product because it helps to effectively prevent the water penetration and thus, eliminates the harmful effects due to humidity as the formation of moss and lichen and upwelling of blooms.
WHAT ARE THE PROPERTIES OF THIS CONCRETE PROTECTOR?
Faceal Hydro CP has a curative property: It stops existing corrosion of reinforced concrete structures (maximum corrosion rate of 5 microns/cm²). It is the ideal treatment to protect all types of structures such as bridges, piers, parking, architectural concrete, etc. Over the years, it can significantly reduce repairs done to building materials and structures.
Faceal Hydro HP has a preventive property: The metal reinforcements, in contact with humidity and chlorides (de-icing salts) oxidize, resulting in expansion that cracks the concrete and weakens the mechanical strength of the material components
Unlike corrosion inhibitors on the market, Faceal Hydro CP penetrates very deeply into concrete, up to 6 cm thick, and thus blocks humidity and chlorides. It is also very effective on micro-cracks up to 0.3 mm.
