Sydney Opera House
Surface Type: Engineered Concrete
Product Used: Dry-Treat 100N™ (Now S-TECH 100N™)
The requirements for the project were:
- Sealer used had to provide long lasting protection against efflorescence and salt spalling.
- Sealer had to protect against steel reinforcement corrosion.
- Sealer could not damage the surrounding glass.
- Surface had to retain original look.
The Dry-Treat Solution
DRY-TREAT 100N™ was chosen for the project. The deep penetrating sealer creates a water-repelling barrier which has helped to protect the exposed pre-cast concrete from damaged caused by water penetration. A significant reduction in water entering the concrete will help to protect against spalling, and subsequent corrosion of the steel reinforcement. After the two coats of DRY-TREAT 100N™ were applied, any over-spray was easily washed off and did not affect the massive glass viewing windows.
