As a certified Women Business Enterprise (WBE), we strive  to create, develop and sustain a global, inclusive culture, where differences drive innovative solutions to meet the needs of our customers to extend the service life of their structure.

Our concrete solutions offer a systemic approach utilizing chemistry to permanently inhibit corrosion in reinforced concrete elements and provide an alternative to less permanent costly concrete repair practices (or cycles). Our solutions react chemically with the cement phase of concrete to improve its properties. Surtreat’s concrete applications restore and improve concrete strength, reduce permeability, and inhibit corrosion of the embedded reinforcement. This reduces the need for removal and replacement methods ordinarily associated with concrete repair work.  Our solutions reduce costs and provide for longer lasting concrete restoration and protection results. Our materials extend structure service life, reduce maintenance costs associated with structure operation, and protect the environment by restoring the properties of substrates and minimizing repair remove and replace.

Watch to see our what our founders, Robert Walde and Anthony Fiasco, are most excited about for the future of Surtreat and what projects have been some of the most memorable for them. 


Surtreat is an active member in the corrosion community, taking part in many organizations and groups that focus on exploring and discussing corrosion related matters. Below are some of the groups and certifications that Surtreat is proud to belong to:

In 1996, Surtreat Solutions, Inc. under the National Aeronautics and Space Act of 1958 signed a Space Act Agreement to evaluate and advance corrosion prevention and inhibition technology for steel reinforced concrete structures.

Our ties with ICRI go back to the moving efforts of Robert Walde, a SURTREAT® founder part of producing the corrosion guidelines for surface applied corrosion inhibitors. Our solutions are directly in line with the ICRI guidelines that defines practices used for sustainable solutions within the concrete repair industry.

UFGS warrants the credibility of our solutions in any federal, US Army Corp of Engineers design projects. Any project that requires corrosion inhibitors and is guided by the UFGS specification can be fulfilled by our solutions.

As a member of the American Concrete Institute, we share and help develop governing codes and guidelines for the concrete community. We aso use our membership to keep informed on the latest and greatest in corrosion fighting technology. 







SURTREAT® was started in Pittsburgh by Bob Walde and Tony Fiasco

SURTREAT® Founders

Focused on the sustainability of infrastructure, Bob Walde and Tony Fiasco founded Surtreat Solutions, Inc. to implement a new and unique system to address concrete deterioration. It included the chemical restoration of the cement properties of the deteriorating concrete structures and corrosion inhibition of the embedded reinforcement.

Contracted with NASA for Advanced Corrosion Prevention

Space Act Agreement

In 1996, Surtreat Solutions, Inc. under the National Aeronautics and Space Act of 1958 signed a Space Act Agreement to evaluate and advance corrosion prevention and inhibition technology for steel reinforced concrete structures.


Concrete Restoration Project Completed for NASA

Launch Pad 39A

NASA completed the concrete restoration work on Launch Pad 39A using SURTREAT® solutions for corrosion inhibition of the embedded reinforcement.


Certification in the Republic of Korea and European Union

Certification Process Completed

Completed multi-year certification process by government agencies in the Republic of Korea and the European Union. SURTREAT® solutions are certified to inhibit corrosion of the embedded reinforcement, increase strength, reduce permeability, reduce water soluble chloride content, resist chemical attack on concretes exposed to aggressive deleterious environments.


10-Year Corrosion Study at US Army Base in Okinawa, Japan

Contract With US Army Corps of Engineers

In 2006, Surtreat Solutions, Inc. signed a contract the US Army Corps of Engineers CERL for a ten-year corrosion study at the US Army Base in Okinawa, Japan. Upon successful completion in 2017, a new standard was added to the United Facilities Guide Specification (UFGS) reflecting proper concrete applications techniques and evaluation for the corrosion inhibition of the embedded steel reinforcement on concrete. By this, SURTREAT® solutions for concrete applications are approved by all branches of the US Military and NASA for use.
