Concrete repair in chloride contaminated structures causes incipient anode formation and results in reinforcement corrosion and concrete spalling at the border of repair areas. Performing the repair work using high resistivity concrete and installing galvanic anodes in the parent concrete at the edge of the repair patch can ensure targeted current delivery to the high-risk corrosion area in the concrete around the repaired locations.
Savcor Products Australia is launching the new anodes on to the Australian market. These anodes are manufactured by Vector Corrosion Technologies in Canada which is the leading global manufacturer of galvanic anodes for concrete applications. The compact, alkali-activated zinc anode is simple to install, is suitable for embedment within the concrete cover, and has 130 grams of zinc which provides long-term protection and excellent current distribution along the edge of the repair area.
