CorrosionAdd CLEANFLO STEELCARE in Concrete to Enhance Corrosion Free Service Life of RCC

In fact, when we design any RCC structure, Corrosion on Reinforcement bar is a major concern, and generally, when we reach at less than half of designed service life, the process of corrosion on reinforcement bar starts taking place, which creates havoc in the later stages.

Presently, different anti-corrosive coatings like Cement Polymer Composite Coating (CPCC), Epoxy Coating, Fusion Bonded Epoxy Coating, Cement Slurry Coating- 4 step treatment etc. are available in the market.

As the process of coating on reinforcement bar has different demerits and limitations, there was a huge demand to develop a more effective, economical, low dosage and user-friendly additive which could be mixed while making concrete at site or at the RMC plant itself, without adversely affecting the physical properties of concrete, and enhance the corrosion-free service life of RCC structures.

Seeing the demand, CLEANFLO INDIA in Technical Association with CSIR-CECRI, a premier R&D Institute under the Ministry of Science & Technology (Govt. of India), started working on it two decades ago, and finally came up with the excellent product CLEANFLO STEELCARE - a corrosion resistant admixture for reinforced concrete.

Inimitable Advantages:
  • User- and Eco-Friendly
  • Non-toxic
  • Extremely suitable for high chloride environments
  • Does not affect bond strength of concrete
  • Does not adversely affect the physical properties of concrete
  • Involves a simple step of adding the admixture during preparation of concrete
  • Alternate to Rebar Coatings.
Point of Addition
CLEANFLO STEELCARE is directly added just like other admixtures into wet concrete at the batching plants with batch water. It can also be added to the transit mixture at the site, and mixed along with batch water at the time of discharge.

Inhibitor Solution

Application
CLEANFLO STEELCARE is highly suitable for all types of RCC structures situated in Marine, Aggressive, Mild and Moderate Environments like:
  • Highway Bridges
  • Refineries
  • Flyovers
  • Marine Structures
  • Power Plants
  • Hydraulic Structures
  • Underground Structure
  • Railways Sleepers
  • Flyovers
  • Industrial Structures
  • Jetties
  • Residential Buildings
  • Commercial Buildings
  • Docks
  • Hydro Projects/Dams
  • Airports
  • Runways etc.
Dosage
200 ML of CLEANFLO STEELCARE per bag of Cement for Mild & Moderate Environment and 250 ML per bag of Cement for High Chloride Environment. It should not be mixed with any other admixture prior & being introduced in the concrete.

Packing Size: 5 Ltr, 10 Ltr, 20 Ltr, 50 Ltr & 200 Ltr Drum

Approvals
  • CLEANFLO STEELCARE Approved by DMRC.
  • Enlisted in Telangana & Aandhra Pradesh Building SOR 16-17,17-18, 18-19
