Concrete Preservation Technologies offer a range of services to assist the client in developing an understanding of reinforced concrete corrosion issues on their structures. Understanding the origin and extent of corrosion activity is imperative to formulating the best value repair or maintenance solution.
- Testing and Assessment CPT offer a range of physical assessment services for reinforced concrete structures including half-cell potential mapping and chloride profiling. This data allows the client to understand the fundamental issues affecting a structure and apply the most cost effective solution. Our comprehensive technical support helps the client to implement an effective and efficient corrosion mitigation solution.
- Monitoring Services CPT offer a full monitoring service in which a monitoring system can be designed in conjunction with the client, before installation on site. Physical parameters commonly monitored include steel potential, steel corrosion rate, galvanic current output and temperature. Corrosion monitoring systems often form part of a life care plan strategy.
- Mathematical Modelling Modelling can be used to gain an understanding of the chloride diffusion characteristics of reinforced concrete, both in new and existing structures. With a knowledge of chloride ion content from site, and known concrete physical properties, chloride ion diffusion rates can be modelled, offering an indication of estimated time to corrosion initiation. This can be used as part of a life care plan strategy.
