What is the life expectancy of Dincel-wall?

A Dincel wall is a concrete wall with an additional polymer skin. This skin is not only ‘lost formwork’ but also has the additional benefit of acting as a protective membrane. This means the predicted life of a concrete wall is only further enhanced with the Dincel skin.

As has been known for centuries, concrete structures have exceptionally long life spans. In recent times, concrete structures have in some applications reduced in life-span due to the addition of steel reinforcement which can be prone to corrosion. As Dincel provides a waterproof protective skin, it eliminates the risk of steel reinforcement corrosion and therefore allows for an exceptionally long life span - estimated to be a minimum of 120 years.
