De-icing Salts Attacking Concrete Surfaces

sidewalk salt damage

Salt Damage to Concrete & Masonry is Expensive

De-Icings salts such as rock salt, calcium chloride, magnesium chloride, and other salt related products all do damage to concrete surfaces.  The resulting slurry of melted ice and salt is absorbed into the concrete causing spalling and general erosion of the surface. Salt Block WB does not allow the salty slurry created by the de-icing salt from soaking into the concrete and destroying your concrete surface.  A chemical reaction occurs within the pores of the concrete creating an invisible barrier which prevents absorption into the surface.  A treatment of Salt Block will save you hundreds of dollars in future concrete repairs.

What if the damage is already done?

Concrete that has pitted and spalled needs to be repaired using a concrete repair mortar such as Plas-Tex Powder.  All broken and loose concrete needs to be removed prior to patching to ensure the patch gets a strong, permanent bond.  Once all patching has been completed and allowed to cure the surface can now be sealed with Salt Block WB to protect and prevent future damage from de-icing salts.

Leaking containment tanks

You see it in the news a lot where a chemical tank leaks a hazardous material into a river, a body of water or in the ground.  You would think that if you are going to have storage tanks with hazardous chemicals, someone within the company should be responsible to check that the secondary concrete or block walls which are supposed to contain any accidental spillage are in good shape. A simple spot check could have saved that company a lot of aggravation. If the containment wall has cracks in it, then fix it! Chargar’s Epoxy Waterproofer would be a fast and inexpensive solution to any containment wall or floor cracks which as you have seen in the news can leak chemicals. Chargar’s Epoxy Waterproofer is a heavy bodied Epoxy which can be brushed over a crack, bridging it and not allow any chemical to leak out. Maybe a few dollars can or could have saved a particular company from having to file bankruptcy. This could have been done as an emergency repair as soon as the crack became visible to an inspector within the company. Most importantly that chemical could have been kept out of the local water supply.
