Corrosion Control

Understanding the underlying causes of reinforcement corrosion in concrete determines the remediation requirements for the solution. Swantest can carry out a detailed survey of any structure, including sampling and testing for carbonation, chlorides, compressive strength and reinforcement properties, to inform the correct solution to arrest the corrosion process.

Our engineers and site staff can then implement the selected corrosion control technique to extend the life of the structure as required. These could include simple coatings application, corrosion inhibitors, galvanic anodes or impressed current cathodic protection.
