Sika® Galvashield® XP+

Part of the Sika® Galvashield® series


DESCRIPTION

Sika Galvashield XP+ embedded galvanic anodes utilize an innovative zinc core design surrounded by a specially formulated cementitious mortar to provide high capacity, high current output performance. Sika Galvashield XP+ is used in concrete rehabilitation to control active corrosion adjacent to completed patch repairs and to prevent the formation of new corrosion sites. The small puck-shaped anode [2.5 in. (64 mm) diameter by 1.1 in. (27 mm) high] is quickly and easily fastened to the exposed reinforcing steel. Once installed, the zinc core corrodes preferentially to the surrounding rebar, thereby providing galvanic corrosion prevention to the adjacent reinforcing steel.

APPLICATIONS

  • Severe service conditions

  • Concrete with high chloride content

  • High steel density

  • Patch repairs where concrete removal does not extend until clean steel is encountered

  • Bridge widening

  • Joints between new and existing concrete

  • Slab replacement

  • Expansion joint repair

  • Repair of epoxy coated rebar

FEATURES AND BENEFITS

  • High Capacity - Contains 60% more zinc than Sika Galvashield XP.

  • High Output - typically 2 times the current output of Sika Galvashield XP.

  • Focused protection - provides localized corrosion protection where it is needed the most, at the interface of the repair and the remaining contaminated concrete.

  • Economical - low cost method of providing galvanic corrosion control to structures in demanding service conditions.

  • Versatile - Can be used for many types of structures.

  • User friendly - installation is quick and easy, requiring no special equipment or training.

  • Low maintenance – requires no external power source or system monitoring.

  • Measurable – anode performance can be easily monitored if required.

  • Long lasting – 10 to 20 year service life* reduces the need for future repairs.
