Best Anti-Carbonation Coating in India
Concrete surfaces require coating to protect the surfaces from harsh weather. Anti-carbonation coatings are surface treatments that have a high resistance to carbon dioxide. They protect concrete from carbonation by making carbon dioxide as a barrier. But prior to the application of this type of coating, it is very important to study the failure pattern and consider other_products for repair treatment. Most of the anti-carbonation coatings are solvent based composition of acrylic solution polymer, properly selected & graded inert fillers, light fast pigments & additives. The anti-carbonation coating is also formulated to protect reinforced concrete and other masonry cementitious substrate that is directly exposed to atmospheric conditions like UV radiation, high humidity, heavy rain, industrial pollution, & carbonation. It penetrates into the porous concrete substrate, producing an exterior masonry-impermeable coating.Some of the advantages of anti-carbonation coating are-
- These coatings are excellent barriers to penetration & attack of carbon dioxide, water, sulphates and chloride ions & provide a tough, flexible & durable coating
- The coating protects the structures from adverse marine and coastal environments
- They provide excellent adhesion to substrate, with a high film build-up
- They also provide excellent resistance to algae & fungal problems
- They are easy for application as it is straightaway applied from the container by brush, roller or spray
Problem / What is at stake?
India being a tropical country, with a huge coastline, many cities have extreme weather conditions all around the year. With no protection treatments for concrete structures, the degradation of concrete is quite fast. In extreme environments, Anti-carbonation coatings need to be used as surface treatments that have a high resistance to carbon dioxide & they shield the concrete from carbonation by acting as a barrier.
Carbonation of reinforced concrete and masonry is almost impossible to avoid and begins as soon as the substrate is exposed to the external elements. When concrete reacts with the carbon dioxide in the atmosphere it loses alkalinity and corrosion of the reinforced steel starts.
