Concrete components with a silicate coating are a secure basis in areas where liquids of different composition regularly mix with domestic waste water. This is because the silicate-based coatings from SINNOTEC react under room temperature and crystallize without stress in the surface. The result is closed-pore concrete components of extreme hardness.
Capillary porosity and carbonisation are essential risk factors for concrete purpose-built buildings. If the wet element is constantly washing around the building material, there is a threat of cracks, spalling and corrosion of the steel reinforcement if poorly protected. This can lead to a loss of the minimum load-bearing capacity or stability. SINNOTEC silicate chemistry hardens itself on wet surfaces and defies even the highest pressure water.
Whether fermenters, water storage or bulk material storage – the conversion of concrete must often withstand extremely heavy pressure. Once the surfaces are attacked by cracks and spalling, there is a risk of progressive damage. Even the statics of the building are sometimes in danger. SINNOTEC Silicate Chemistry creates dense, solid surfaces, which are sustainable.
Many an oil cellar brings doubt to its name: A leak in the tank here, an overflowing puddle there – and the floor becomes porous. Unless it was optimally protected: SINNOTEC silicate chemistry ensures maximum safety and impermeability of surfaces. for where the protection of the ground water is imperative.
During the development of high-performance concrete refinement and restoration products, it was important to SINNOTEC to reduce the capillary porosity of the components by filling the cavities. Silicate technology has proved to be particularly promising here: The alkaline activation of granulated blast furnace slag by water glass leads to extremely hard surfaces with closed pores. The result is great: Experts speak of the ceramic-like texture of the resulting structures.
When talking about renovation, one quickly thinks of building parts that are visible to the naked eye. It is, however, just as important to keep the waste waster pipes in the soil, in working order and to repair them professionally where necessary. A silica-based SINNOTEC coating is recommended for pipelines and ducts made of concrete. It ensures an extra smooth and robust inner surface, which even withstands 100% hydrochloric acid.
Just because you can not readily survey the entire sewerage network does not mean that everything in the ground is in order. The Water Resources Act (WHG) stipulates the mandatory sealing of all underground pipelines. Water management facilities such as sewage treatment plants including clarifying and catch basins, supply lines and drainage from A to Z must comply with this. In many federal states there is an obligation to produce supporting documents which applies to municipal as well as commercial and private piping systems.
When the stubborn stains and oily encrustations are cleaned away, the extent of damage to the interior transformation becomes clear: Sewage pipes covered by concrete should be cleaned as soon as possible before larger and even worse damage occurs. A hole in a waste water pipe lets acids, soapsuds, oils, fats, excrements and bacteria in all kinds of liquids seep into the ground and ground water. Who should have to drink that?!
Protected against abrasion and further wear with SINNOTEC silicate chemistry, the transormation looks much better: dense rather than porous surfaces, no cracks or cavities, bacteria and other substances cannot cling onto anywhere. A floor channel with constantly flowing fluid is the best prerequisite to ensure that the next inspection will not need to be carried out for a long time.
Like freshly renovated: Above-average homogeneous, solid and sealed surfaces of the repaired pipes and ducts make it difficult for bacteria and dirt particles to adhere permanently. In flowing or stagnant sewage water the silica-based SINNOTEC coating of the bypass duct ensures that no leakage forms in the concrete component.
