Durability, Safety and Intelligent Maintenance of Buildings
are Achievable with Savcor Products
Savcor Cathodic Protection of Parking Houses
Reinforced concrete structures in parking houses are under the same risk of chloride induced corrosion as the structures located outdoors. Main reasons for the corrosion are moisture and chlorides brought in by vehicles. Studs of the winter tires can damage the floor coatings (if existing) and chlorides from de-icing salts will have a pathway to reinforcement steel surface. Moisture and chlorides can travel above the floor level by capillary phenomenon. Very high chloride concentrations have been found even 1 meter above the floor level pillars and walls.
