Steffel’s special corrosion protection for structures made of steel and concrete.
Steel reinforcing can sustain corrosion damage from chlorides penetrating the concrete and from carbonation which causes water to sink through the pores in the concrete. Both can endanger the load-bearing capacity of reinforced concrete structures.
As an alternative to conventional concrete repair measures, cathodic corrosion protection can improve the service life of a structure by several decades. Installing a CP system when building new reinforced concrete structures ensures preventive protection against corrosion, and renders future maintenance measures unnecessary.
