CPD Presentations & Seminars
CPD PRESENTATIONS ON CORROSION PREVENTION METHODS AND TECHNOLOGY
Electrochemical Protection methods have become a recognised repair method for reinforced concrete structures. It is the only practical long-term solution for chloride-induced corrosion. The Corrosion Prevention Association has developed a presentation, which fully explains the general principles of corrosion prevention and includes details of recent case studies. The presentation, accredited by the Construction CPD Certification Service, is approximately 45 minutes in duration, covering
Description of corrosion prevention systems
Assessment prior to installing corrosion prevention systems, including: comparison with other repair methods and the merits of the various electrochemical techniques; protection of critical/sensitive elements; and cautionary notes.
Corrosion prevention options, including: impressed current systems versus galvanic anode systems; power supplies; performance monitoring systems; and cathodic protection of new or undamaged structures
Design Process and Procurement.
Performance Assessment, Inspection and Maintenance .
Two CPA members, either a consultant; a specialist contractor;, or a specialist product manufacturer present the programme. The CPA does not charge for giving the presentation, but requires organisations to perhaps assist audio visual equipment.

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
A key objective of the Corrosion Prevention Association is to identify, quantify and communicate the principles and benefits of corrosion prevention to those having an influence or an interest in the design, construction, use, maintenance, preservation and investment in reinforced concrete buildings and structures.
