Cathodic Protection Services
Structures suffering from widespread chloride contamination and corrosion may substantially benefit from the use of cathodic protection. Cathodic protection and electrochemical systems such as galvanic, impressed current, and electrochemical chloride extraction / re-alkalization systems supply direct current to the reinforcing steel to counteract corrosion activity.
