Reinforcement Corrosion: Cause and Effect

Bare steel reinforcement relies entirely on protection provided by the surrounding concrete. Most obviously, the concrete cover serves as a physical barrier separating the reinforcement from the external environment. Read the full article

Protecting reinforcement by galvanizing

Galvanizing is the process of applying a metallurgically bonded zinc coating to steel by immersion in molten zinc and is used extensively throughout the world for corrosion protection. The coating’s excellent corrosion protection derives from both the low natural corrosion rate of zinc coupled with its ability to extend protection to adjacent exposed steel areas should they be present, an […]

Galvanized reinforcement in major infrastructure

Where it is considered that normal reinforced concrete will not have adequate durability, galvanized reinforcement is often used in preference to conventional steel reinforcement. Read the full article

Galvanized steel reinforcement in concrete

Reinforced concrete is one of the most widely used modern materials of construction. It is comparatively cheap, readily available, and suitable for a variety of building and construction applications. Read the full article
