Corrosion of metals in concrete is one of the most serious – and most visible – forms of concrete deterioration and can be seen in parking structures, marine structures, industrial plants, buildings, bridges and pavements. Chemical reactions, mostly caused by chlorides, are responsible for corrosion.

US-based Cortec Corporation has come up with a customised corrosion solution for pipe end protection using its Vapor phase Corrosion Inhibitors (VpCI) technology.

Evonik says its silane products, with their anti-corrosive properties, can play a key role in providing durable protection to steel reinforced concrete structures.
