Electro Tech CP™ Metalized Corrosion Control Systems

Metalized Cathodic Protection (MCP) Systems for Concrete

Metalizing Concrete

Utilizing commercially available and patented anode alloys, STRUCTURAL TECHNOLOGIES’ metalized cathodic protection systems are designed to deliver corrosion protection to embedded reinforcing steel in concrete through the galvanic process.

When connected to reinforcing steel in concrete, a metalized anode system delivers a uniform protective current. Simple to operate, these systems do not require external power and offer lower lifecycle costs compared to other methods of cathodic protection. A metalized surface may also be coated for aesthetic purposes or to provide additional protection.

When properly designed and installed, our Metalized Cathodic Protection Systems are:

  • Adaptable – sprayed anode coating conforms to any type of concrete structural component. Array of alloys available for various environments.
  • Robust - adheres strongly to the concrete substrate ensuring the anode remains in place for the life of the system.
  • Easy to maintain – systems do not require external power, are visually inspectable, and allow for application of additional coating materials in the future without disrupting the structure.

Metalized Protective Coatings for Steel and Metals

Steel and other metals exposed to corrosive environments benefit from the unique protective characteristics of thermal spray technology. STRUCTURAL TECHNOLOGIES works with engineers owners and operators to select the appropriate thermal sprayed coating that best protects the specific structure. Selection factors include the material composition of the structure and the associated corrosive contents of a structure and/ or the surrounding atmospheric environment that the structure is exposed to on a daily basis.

Thermal Spray Coating Materials

Metalizing WireThermally sprayed coatings are obtained by melting a material, atomizing it into small particles and propelling these on to a prepared substrate. The resulting coating cools down and forms a barrier with unique characteristics. These include strong bonds and resistance to atmospheric corrosion, high temperatures, corrosion, and chemical attack.

Thermal spray coatings of zinc, aluminum and their alloys are chosen to protect steel for a number of reasons including both their resistance to corrosion in atmospheric environments. and because they act as a sacrificial coating that protects the steel galvanically. Specialty alloys based on Nickel, Chromium, and other proprietary alloys are selected for high temperature and erosion corrosion typically present in flue gas path environments. Our corrosion engineers assist in selecting the proper coating that may include:

  • Corrspray®
  • Zinc
  • Aluminum
  • Zinc/Aluminum 85-15
  • ArcMelt® Flue gas path and chemical environment alloys.
     
Installation Method

Spraying Metalized Zinc

These systems are typically installed using the wire arc method, a process where two wires of metal are energized and melted, then propelled towards a prepared surface at a high speed to create a dense coating that adheres strongly to the substrate.

STRUCTURAL TECHNOLOGIES helps develop the application-specific installation method, and also provides equipment, alloy coatings and expert technical field support, as well as quality assurance / quality control.

STRUCTURAL TECHNOLOGIES’ Corrosion Team provides highly specialized investigative and engineering services. Our team integrates with owners, engineers and builders to provide or assist in initial assessment and design – in order to identify the root cause of the corrosion and determine the proper solution for the individual application.

Specialized Engineering Services for Corrosion

Corrosion Assessment

Corrosion assesmentSTRUCTURAL TECHNOLOGIES supports both our in-house and industry partners in condition assessment by performing a variety of evaluations to determine the extent of corrosion related damages. We draw upon the experience of our corrosion experts to interpret the data and ascertain the level of deterioration of a structure. In addition we evaluate the longevity of the structure based on its current condition and potential extension of its service life based on repair and/or installation of corrosion mitigation systems.

Assessment Services Include:
  • Comprehensive condition and/or corrosion assessments
  • Corrosion damage surveys
  • Corrosion rate analysis
  • Concrete contamination, including chloride and carbonation.
  • Concrete resistivity
  • Diagnostic services
  • Time to failure / chloride, carbonation modeling
