Corrosion Inhibiting Admixture
Sika® CNI is a calcium nitrite-based admixture designed to inhibit the corrosion of steel in reinforced concrete. Sika® CNI contains 30 % calcium nitrite by mass.
Sika® CNI is recommended for conventional steel reinforcement as well as prestressed or post-tensioned concrete that will be exposed to chlorides from marine environments or deicing salts. Sika® CNI will extend the service life of structures by effectively inhibiting corrosion, in areas such as parking garage decks and support structures, bridge decks, marine structures and many others. Sika® CNI may also be used in concrete elements where chlorides are added initially to the concrete mix. Sika® CNI is a corrosion-inhibiting admixture that provides protection against corrosion in reinforced concrete structures. Sika® CNI:
- Extends the service life of reinforced concrete structures.
- Is recommended for use in all types of reinforced concrete, precast and/or prestressed concrete as well as ready mix applications.
