Structures exposed to corrosive environments, such as parking garages, demand special protection. The AMSYSCO Encapsulated PT System is designed and produced to provide the highest possible level of corrosion protection. Our advanced design and manufacturing process provides watertight encapsulation of the steel strand, anchorage and all connections.
We begin by coating the steel strand with special high-quality corrosion-inhibiting PT-coating (grease), followed with high-density plastic sheathing manufactured using our state-of-the-art extrusion process. Then each anchorage is fully encased in an extruded jacket of high-density polyethylene. A tightly-sealed plastic sleeve is fitted on the anchor/strand connection to provide additional protection. Finally, a grease-filled cap is snapped-on to prevent moisture intrusion into the tendon ends.
