Roads, Bridges, and Dams


salt truckIn 2009, the US EPA estimated that we spread over eleven million tons of salt on our roads and bridges every winter. Trouble is, concrete’s life is shortened by the constant assault of salt and freeze/thaw cycles.  Add the weight and frequency of car and truck traffic, and a small divot in a concrete road surface becomes a large pothole.  

When you melt ice on the road with salt, the result is salty water. And where does it go? Into the concrete, only to freeze again. Only this time, the freezing salt water is destroying the concrete inside and out… 

CreteDefender ends this cycle of salt and freeze/thaw damage by filling the pores inside the concrete and keeping the ph at concrete’s normal level. Permanently. You can keep your roads and bridges safe for travel without destroying them. 

CreteDefender is DOT approved in Missouri, Illinois, Ohio, and North Carolina.  Its capabilities have been thoroughly tested in these states for the past 14 years. Now, many other states are evaluating CreteDefender for use on their public roadways and bridges.  CreteDefender is not only economical to apply, but it is proven to increase the useful life of roads and bridges and greatly reduce or eliminate costly concrete repairs.

    • Eliminates freeze/thaw cycle damage
    • Eliminates salt damage and chloride penetration
    • Protects reinforcement from corrosion and degradation
    • Increases skid resistance by 6% (ODOT test)
    • Reduces maintenance and increases life
