Concrete Corrosion

What is Concrete Corrosion?

-Corrosion of the embedded reinforcement in concrete usually becomes apparent through exterior spalling and delamination of the concrete's surface

-Over a period of time, the steel reinforcement within the concrete is attacked and corrodes, as this happens the surface area of the steel expands up to 3 times its original volume, which causes the concrete to crack and delaminate.

-Once corrosion is identified it needs to be treated to prevent further structural degradation.

-This can be treated by using QED's Embedded Corrosion Inhibitor Margel ™
