Steel Corrosion In Concrete Surtreat Solutions

Apr 07, 2021  As concrete is exposed to moisture and atmospheric carbon dioxide – a condition known as carbonation – the alkaline environment is neutralized, and the corrosion is initiated. Moisture will infiltrate either through cracks resulting from shrinkage of the cement or with movement of the structure.

Correcting and Preventing Concrete Corrosion

Mar 08, 2016  Concrete corrosion can occur rapidly at tropical resorts in marine environments. Usually, the most exposed elements deteriorate first – but the underlying corrosion is unseen. Active corrosion in the steel beneath may take five to 15 years to initiate cracks in the concrete, but much of the corroded reinforcement is not visible.
