Reinforcing steel corrosion is the most common cause of failure of concrete structures. Once started, rebar corrosion can not be stopped by simply waterproofing the surface of the concrete. Surtreat is a proprietary concrete restoration and protection system. The system includes sequential application of chemical treatments to improve the properties of the deteriorating concrete and protect new structures.
