MasterProtect 860 CP
Anodic conductive cementitious mortar for reinforced concrete cathodic protection
What is MasterProtect 860 CP?
MasterProtect 860 CP is a two component cement based, polymer modified, conductive fiber reinforced, highly durable unique anode mortar. It is specifically designed for impressed current cathodic protection of steel reinforced concrete structures which have active corrosion. The cementitious based system provides excellent concrete compatibility.
MasterProtect 860 is impact and abrasion resistant and water vapour permeable.
What makes MasterProtect 860 a unique solution?
MasterProtect 860 contains highly-conductive coated fibers, three-dimensionally distributed throughout a cementitious mortar.
The electro catalytic coating on the fibers has a very low consumption rate and anode interfacial reactions are uniformly distributed throughout the entire body of the material.
As the MasterProtect 860 CP is applied to the entire concrete surface, this reduces and/or eliminates the hot-spot effects (e.g. non-uniform concrete coverage over the reinforcement, localized high chloride concentrations, conductivity of repair mortars different from the conductivity of the concrete etc…).
The porosity of MasterProtect 860 CP and the concrete are of the same magnitude. The compatible porosity of the material provides that the exchange reactions take place within the MasterProtect 860 CP and not at the overlay/concrete interface.
MasterProtect 860 CP provides excellent corrosion protection of reinforced concrete structures with easy and a very low cost maintenance during the long service life.
The electro catalytic coating on the fibers has a very low consumption rate and anode interfacial reactions are uniformly distributed throughout the entire body of the material, which results in long and maintenance-free lifetime.
Application of a primary anode only every 2 meters, instead of a mesh installed to the entire surface makes MasterProtect 860 CP very easy and fast applied. Easy installation process results with low cost.
MasterProtect 860 CP can be easily repaired over the service life with low costs.
