CONTRIBUTION TO THE STUDY OF THE BEHAVIOUR OF METALS IN CARBONATED CONCRETE

CONTRIBUTION A L'ETUDE DU COMPORTEMENT DES METAUX DANS LES BETONS CARBONATES

ELECTROCHEMICAL TESTS HAVE SHOWN THAT CHLORIDES CREATE A SEVERE RISK OF CORROSION FOR METALS CONTAINED IN CONCRETE, IN PARTICULAR FOR STEEL REINFORCEMENT. SULPHIDES ALSO CREATE RISKS TO STEEL WHEN CARBONATION LOWERS THE PH OF CONCRETE. SULPHATES DO NOT INCREASE CORROSION CAUSED BY THE CARBONATION OF THE ENVIRONMENT.
