The CPA has through its Technical Committee produced a wide range of advice of all aspects of corrosion prevention techniques including cathodic protection, realkalisation, chloride extraction,galvanic anodes and corrosion inhibitors. Other important issues dealt with are monitoring & maintenance, training & certification, stray current as well as budget costs. All the Technical Notes and other publications are available by clicking the link below.
LATEST CPA TECHNICAL NOTES
The Corrosion Prevention Association’s Technical Note 22 offers advice on Cathodic protection for buried & immersed structures and Technical Note 23 Cathodic protection for new structures highlights the increasing use of such systems for new structures in particularly corrosive environments, or where longevity and guaranteed durability are of particular importance.

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.
