Ensuring Extended Durability for Concrete
Concrete is the most utilised construction material globally, with millions of cubic metres produced every year. Its popularity stems from its strength and versatility, allowing for the construction of bridges, tunnels, parking structures, commercial floors, industrial buildings, residential properties, hospitals and more. Another key attribute of concrete is its long lifespan. But this doesn’t mean that it lasts forever, and the challenge lies in extending the lifespan of concrete structures.
The Sooner the Intervention, the Better
A significant portion of concrete structures were built in the 1970s and 1980s, using different concrete formulations than those used today. Back then, accelerators such as chlorides were commonly added in order to expedite curing, but these contribute to reinforcement corrosion, concrete degradation and, eventually, concrete decay. This degradation is an exponential process, making early intervention through concrete repair, cathodic protection or strengthening crucial for cost-effectiveness. This is our area of expertise.
Vogel's specialists offer solutions for repairing damaged concrete, ensuring that structures will again last for years.
The ultimate solution for combating reinforcement corrosion in concrete structures. Applicable to nearly all concrete structures, with guaranteed results.
Stronger concrete structures using adhesive Carbon Fibre Reinforced Plastic to boost their load-bearing capacity.
When a concrete structure starts showing signs of ageing or fails to meet current usage demands, where do you begin? While there are many concrete repairers, specialists in adhesive reinforcement and cathodic protection are rarer. Mourik stands out by offering all these services as a comprehensive solution, coordinating projects from beginning to end. This is crucial, as there is no quick fix for concrete issues. Mourik is the one-stop solution for prolonging the life of any concrete structure. Guaranteed.
