Corrosion Prevention, Cathodic Protection for Concrete and Masonry Encased Steel, UK
The Corrosion Prevention Association represents consultants, contractors and manufacturers working in the field of corrosion prevention for reinforced concrete and masonry encased steel.
The CPA acts as the leading authority and source of information on the subject of cathodic protection, and other electrochemical treatments including realkalisation, desalination, chloride extraction, corrosion inhibitors and the use of galvanic and impressed current anodes in cathodic protection systems. The CPA aims to ensure a greater understanding of the preservation of reinforced concrete structures and masonry clad steel framed buildings.

CONTINUITY AND SHORTS IN ELECTROCHEMICAL TREATMENTS
Electrochemical treatments are extensively used to treat corrosion-damaged concrete. These include impressed current and galvanic cathodic protection, chloride extraction, re-alkalisation, and hybrid treatments using a temporary power supply. To read more and download the Technical Note Click here
IMPRESSED CURRENT ANODES FOR THE CATHODIC PROTECTION OF ATMOSPHERICALLY EXPOSED REINFORCED CONCRETE
Impressed current cathodic protection is widely used to provide corrosion control on reinforced concrete structures suffering from reinforcement corrosion. It is also applied to early 20th century steel framed masonry and brick clad buildings and monuments.. To download the Technical note Click here
