Why Enamel? 


The glass layer limits the intrusion of 
chlorides into the reinforcement by 
making a protective layer 
Enamel bonds directly with the steel 
Concrete shrinkage is limited or non¬ 
existent 

It is a known product, around for 


centuries 

Can be applied to virtually any kind of 
metal substrate 


















PRO PERNIA ENGINEERED COATINGS 
Innovative Coatings, Revolutionary Solution: 




Initial Studies 




ERDC began looking into enameling as a 
way to increase strength and limit 
corrosion 

ERDC did preliminary data 

Partnered with outside sources to bring 

the technology forward 

PPEC was an early proponent of this 

technology providing samples

Why Joint Research? 

• Gain access to brighter minds. 

• Participate in the discovery of new or 
novel ideas. 

• Gain a different perspective of the 
technology 

• Make sure that the idea was a good 


one.

Strength and Corrosion 

Resistance 


Our material will promote 
bond strength with the 
concrete interface (an 
improvement of at least 3 
times greater than 
regular rebar) while also 
inhibiting corrosion. 

We use processes that 
have been around 
forever. Equipment 
needed (but not 
optimized) can be 
bought today.

Issues 


Research has shown that we must make a 
more consistent glass layer on the part. 
We need to modify our production to allow 
some different methods of application 
Manufacturing items: 

1. Trying to get a certain % of active component 

2. How to get the material into the matrix 
efficiently 

3. Optimizing the glass layer 

























































Current Work 


PPEC has placed rebar at Corpus 
Christi 



We have other projects through the 
Corps 

Missouri has committed to doing a 
bridge at the conclusion of our 
research 


















We are not a new technology, but rather a 
hybrid. 


We have a technology that has been 
transitioned, is going through applied 
research, and in the demonstration phase 
The technology can be sold 
commercially and needs to be optimized
