Magnesite is a type of flooring material commonly used in the past made from magnesium chloride, popular due to its durability and soundproofing properties. However when Magnesite reacts with moisture it can have devastating effects on the concrete structural integrity surrounding.
Chloride release is worse in moist locations typically such as bathrooms, kitchens and balcony door thresholds. In extreme cases the steel reinforcing within the concrete can be completely corroded. BiM specialises in all things magnesite removal. Our experienced technicians are knowledgeable and equipped to handle any condition in which magnesite is present.
