Corrosion Protection

Corrosion Protection

Engineered for Reliability and Protection

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 anti-corrosion 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 and protected with a grease-filled snap-on cap to prevent moisture intrusion into the tendon ends. Finally, a tightly-sealed plastic sleeve is fitted on the rear of the anchor/strand connection to provide additional protection.

The result is a fully-encapsulated system protected from environmental harm.
