If the sheating is not damaged , you have no problem really. just follow any repair procedure, especially non chloride quick fix ready made material. But if the sheating is damaged already you are in problem. You have to investigate the history. How long it has been like that; because there could be a corrosion problem. If you are satisfied there is no corrosion signs as yet to the tendons, you can tape the sheating or cover it by any means & then follow the procedures as described for the first scenario above.

Subject: Concrete Deck Tendon Repair
Date: Mon, 4 Jun 2001 15:59:22 -0700

Story:
On an existing parking garage concrete slab, post-tensioned tendons are
exposed at the deck surface because the concrete coverage was a little thin.
At a few locations the tendons' sheathing is damaged.

Question:
Are there any suggestions or sources of information for repairing the
sheathing?
