If you already have salt damage, or if your concrete is showing signs of deterioration, you should apply a sodium or lithium silicate densifier. Densifier sealers penetrate into the surface of the concrete where they chemically react to form a permanent calcium silicate hydrate (csh) structure within the pores.
How to Repair Salt Damaged Concrete?
Salt damage to concrete is a common problem that can occur due to over-salting of surfaces or due to flooding or excessive humidity. Salt damage can cause the concrete to become weak and brittle, leading to cracking and crumbling. If the damage is not addressed quickly, it can become worse, leading to costly repairs. Fortunately, repairing salt damaged concrete is an achievable task that requires a few supplies and some basic knowledge of concrete repair.
In order to repair salt damaged concrete, the first step is to remove any debris and dirt from the surface of the concrete. It is best to use a broom and dustpan to clear away dirt and debris. Once this is done, the concrete can be inspected closely for signs of salt damage. If there are areas that appear to be damaged, they should be patched with a concrete patching product.
After the patches have been applied, the next step is to mix a concrete repair material. This material should be mixed according to the manufacturer’s instructions and applied to the affected areas. It is important to follow these instructions carefully in order to ensure that the repair material adheres properly. Once the repair material has been applied, it should be allowed to dry completely before being walked on.
