Sika® CNI

Corrosion Inhibiting Admixture

Sika® CNI is a calcium nitrite-based admixture designed to inhibit the corrosion of steel in reinforced concrete. Sika® CNI contains a minimum of 30 % calcium nitrite by mass and meets the requirements of ASTM C 1582, Corrosion Inhibiting Admixture and ASTM C494, Type C, Accelerating Admixture.

Sika® CNI is recommended for conventional steel reinforcement as well as prestressed or post-tensioned concrete that will be exposed to chlorides from marine environments or deicing salts. Sika® CNI will extend the service life of structures by effectively inhibiting corrosion, in areas such as parking garage decks and support structures, bridge decks, marine structures and many others.     Sika® CNI may also be used in concrete elements where chlorides are added initially to the concrete mix.    Sika® CNI is a corrosion-inhibiting admixture that provides protection against corrosion in reinforced concrete structures. Sika® CNI:
  • Extends the service life of reinforced concrete structures.
  • Is recommended for use in all types of reinforced concrete, precast and/or prestressed concrete as well as ready mix applications.
