European Standard EN 1504-7 specifies the requirements for the identification and performance (including durability aspects) of products and systems for active and barrier coatings for protection of existing uncoated steel reinforcement and embedded steel in concrete structures under repair.
Penetron contains high-quality Portland cement and acts as an active coating for steel protection. It has been tested in accordance with EN 15183:2007 and EN ISO 6988:1998 standards and proven to effectively protect both exposed and embedded steel from the onset of corrosion.
This makes Penetron the world’s first crystalline coating conforming to EN 1504-7.
In addition to completely waterproofing existing concrete structures, Penetron can now also confidently be specified as a solution for the corrosion protection of reinforcement steel on new and existing projects or during repairs – enhancing the durability and service life of your assets.
