In most situations concrete is a stable material and well-made concrete resists deterioration for many years. However, there are instances where concrete is subjected to chemical attack by aggressive substances, and the
durability of concrete may be a concern. Methods have been developed to shield susceptible structures from sulfuric acid produced from hydrogen sulfide.
Several solutions have been proven to fail because they attempt to shield the still
vulnerable concrete surface. These methods use a protective material, which is not readily attacked by sulfuric acid to coat, line or cover the structures. They include:
- Specialty Concrete, Cement & Admixtures
- Sacrificial Wall Thickness
- High Alkalinity Aggregates
- High Alumina Cement
- Microsilica Admixtures
- Protective Coatings
- Protective Liners
The Dynastone® Solution:
Dynastone® meets the needs of the industry by providing a corrosion resistant pipe that is able to resist attack from aggressive materials such as sulfuric acid. It is extremely durable, normally having an expected life of well over 100 years, which is longer than needed in most applications. Dynastone® achieves a long-term strength surpassing that of convention concrete product.
