The Intracoastal Way runs along the East Coast that helps shipping traffic in and out of the United States. In 2014, a seawall in Naples, Florida was due for reconstruction after years of salt water damage. Repair costs continued to increase with extensive cracking in the concrete and severe corrosion of the steel which caused spalling. The owner of the project was considering multiple options for a replacement wall. He wanted to ensure that the new structure would be able to withstand the salt water. The seawall needed to obtain a component that would create less cracks so the salt water would not come in contact with the concrete causing it to crack. The owner was confident that PREVent-C would give the structure a long life-cycle. After 3 months, there was no evidence of shrinkage cracks in the precast wall panels.
