EPOXY COATED CONCRETE REINFORCEMENTS. CORROSION OF REINFORCEMENT IN CONCRETE. PAPERS PRESENTED AT THE THIRD INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM ON "CORROSION OF REINFORCEMENT IN CONCRETE CONSTRUCTION", BELFRY HOTEL, WISHAW, WARWICKSHIRE, MAY 21-24, 1990

The corrosion prevention ability of one fusion bonded epoxy (FBE) coating and three liquid epoxy paints are currently being studied with long-term corrosion tests at the Technical Research Centre of Finland (VTT). On the basis of the test results obtained so far the FBE and the coal tar epoxy coatings prevent corrosion effectively even in aggressive environment (concrete containing CaCl2 and the test specimens partly immersed in synthetic sea water) and one of the liquid coatings even increase corrosion in some cases.(A) For the covering abstract of the conference see IRRD 831449.
