Concrete Repair & Protection

AkzoNobel's Concrete Repair & Protection maintenance solutions for downstream oil & gas

High Performance Solutions for Concrete that Save Weeks & Protect for Decades

Our systems for the repair and protection of concrete are proven effective in real time – our Intercrete range have been on a continuous independent test for 30 Years and are still protecting concrete against any signs of chloride ion ingress.

Concrete Repair & Remediation Solutions Delivering 

  • High strength
  • Easy application
  • Damp tolerant
  • Unrivaled asset protection
  • Fast cure
  • Rapid return to service
  • Surface tolerant
  • Water based - VOC free

Intercrete concrete solutions can reduce downtime from 28 days to 28 hours

Waiting for concrete to cure sufficiently to allow a protective coating or chemical resistant lining to be applied inevitably causes a long-term cessation of your construction progress – but not anymore. Intercrete products can be applied onto damp surfaces and also onto freshly poured (“green”) concrete as soon as it is structurally sound enough to stand on – usually around 24 hours later. Intercrete products can then be over coated with high performance coatings and linings one day later – giving you back nearly 4 weeks.

Faster Coating for Concrete - How Intercrete Works Low Water Content 

High Speed Cure: Concrete needs to cure sufficiently and reduce the overall moisture content within the matrix to around 4% before coatings and chemical resistant linings can be applied. This can take up to 28 days – an inevitable delay to construction progress. Intercrete products have a hugely reduced water content and a highly dense matrix. As shown in the graph, Intercrete products can reach 4% moisture content in hours rather than weeks.
