    ​​​​​Solutions for Marine Structures

    After prolonged exposure, water can be a destructive element for concrete. Master Builders Solutions addresses both new and refurbishment solutions for marine structures such as piers, harborside structures, dams, caissons, piles, and rip rap that may face constant wave pressure, extreme weather conditions, and corrosion from saltwater.

    Admixtures that counter destructive elements

    Complex re​​pair challenges are made simple

    Over time corrosion attack becomes a major problem for the serviceability of marine structures. Years of exposure to severe environmental influences, water infiltration, and the harmful effects of chlorides, sulphates, and freeze-thaw cycles, as well as abrasion caused by sediment in the seawater and shipping impact, are all major contributors to the corrosion of the reinforcement within the concrete.

    Master Builders Solutions supplies almost every repair and protection solution necessary to extend the life span of concrete in this most aggressive of environments. These range from market leading anti-carbonationcoatings and hydrophobizationcoatings, fast curing concrete repairmortars, and essential crackrepair to tried and tested cathodicprotection products that are ideal for maritime structures.
