Go Deep: Innovative Sustainable Concrete Rehabilitation System Lasting Decades
Concrete protection systems are generally surface level and subject to degradation from weather, abrasion, and destructive chemicals. In many cases, a protection system may never have been part of the equation leaving the concrete susceptible to attack and deterioration. In this session, we introduce a sodium silicate protection and rehabilitation system—oXoCrete, supplied by OXO H2O SOLUTIONS INC. This system uses proprietary equipment to treat concrete “deep” within the concrete matrix—up to 25 cm in most cases and laterally up to 50 cm. An overview of the benefits and applications of this system and Ontario based case studies will be presented.
