The corrosion of reinforcement steel in concrete is a universal probem. It is one of the major reasons for failure of concrete due to loss of durability. If concrete is compacted well, leaving no voids, then the rate of corrosion can be controlled. For all practical purposes, even well compacted concrete is likely to have 1-2% voids through which ingress of moisture can take place, which leads to corrosion of the steel. Steel embedded in concrete can expand 5-6 times more than its original volume due to corrosion, causing internal stresses and cracks in the concrete cover. These cracks further aggravate the corrosion process by allowing exposure of the steel.
To overcome the ill effects of corrosion of the steel reinforcement, UltraTech Concrete has introduced a special concrete called ''UltraTech Stainless''.
UltraTech Stainless is a special type of concrete that uses high quality, corrosion inhibiting agents. These agents impart protection to the steel reinforcement by providing a protective coating to it, reducing the rate of corrosion of steel embedded in the concrete. The result stays strong for long and so does the entire structure.
