Margel VPI 580®
Vapour Phase Corrosion Inhibitor for Reinforced Concrete Structures
Margel VPI 580® is a patented vapour phase corrosion inhibitor which is inserted inside concrete structural elements close to the reinforcing steel. The product has been specifically developed to ensure the corrosion inhibitors are released over a period of 12-48 months. This results in a well bonded layer of corrosion inhibitor around the reinforcing steel resulting in a passivated protective layer that reduces exposure to chlorides, water and oxygen.
Margel VPI 580® is a complex blend of Vapour Phase Inhibitors which tackles the problem of reinforcement corrosion by a unique three-pronged approach.
Margel VPI 580® is supplied in a 10ml (8g) hermetically sealed cartridge. Each cartridge contains a blend of all three active ingredients and should be installed by a Margel approved contractor to the exact dosage recommended by the manufacturer.
Technical advice should be sought in the identification and specification of problems associated with reinforcement corrosion in concrete.
