Protectosil® - Your partner for building protection
Evonik's Protectosil® products protect mineral undergrounds as concrete, granite, render or sandstone permanently against harmful environmental influences and pollution. Protectosil®, one of our best-known and longtime successful brands, prevents infrastructural buildings like bridges and tunnels as well as historical monuments from deterioration. Thanks to the protective treatment their service life is extended significantly. Maintenance and energy costs are reduced.
The tower walls of the famous Moyland Castle in Germany and the world's largest collection of Joseph Beuys' works in the castle museum are protected with Protectosil® against the ingress of moisture.
Protectosil® products extend the service life of infrastructure buildings. The bridge piers of the 36 km long Hangzhou Bay Bridge in China are treated with Protectosil® CIT which effectively repels water and pollutants.
Evonik has developed a series of Protectosil® products, designed to meet the particular requirements in the area of hydrophobation. The excellent water beading effect of Protectosil® is shown on the left side.
Protectosil® protects the structure of the 67-meters-high roof of the world-famous Opera House in Sydney, Australia. The product prevents deterioration by humidity rising from the sea.
Water, road salt, and heavy traffic put a strain on the steel-reinforced concrete used in bridges. Protectosil® is a building protection agent that extends the life of important traffic arteries and can prevent potential damage before it can even take hold. The video shows, taking the state of German bridges as example, how Evonik's building protection products can counteract corrosion right from the start of construction.

Maintenance of THE VALUABLE BUILDING STRUCTURE
Evonik offers tailor-made Protectosil® silane-based building protection systems for hydrophobation, graffiti and surface protection, corrosion control and stone consolidation. The main reason for the deterioration of structures is the ingress of humidity, efflorescence or damaging by de-icing salt or salt-wedging. The key to successful protection of valuable building structures is to stop water and chloride ions from entering into the substrate.
We not only look back on many references in the area of corrosion control. We even have the suitable product defending the building material against pollution, infestation of alguae, mould, moss and graffiti in our portfolio.
