Cathodic Protection - CP

Corrosion of the steel reinforcement is one of the major causes for increased maintenance and repair costs and subsequently for the reduction  of the service time of concrete structures. The major causes for the corrosion of the steel reinforcement are ingress of chloride into the concrete overlay due to the application of de-icing salts and/or carbonation of the concrete overlay. Corrosion protection of the steel reinforcement in concrete structures by CP is a cost effective, reliable and widely accepted method to stop and to prevent the corrosion of the steel reinforcement.
