A NEW CLASS OF CORROSION INHIBITORS

Corrosion of steel in concrete structures is a major problem in many countries. In many areas the sources of corrosion are chlorides from deicing salts or from the marine environments. In other areas carbonation is the main cause for the loss of durability of concrete. A wide choice of different protection systems is offered to the customer today. This paper presents results obtained with a new class of organic corrosion inhibitors. These compounds are mixed types of inhibitors showing the ability to diffuse through concrete. The experimental work described includes the use of slump concrete containing the new alkanolamide type corrosion inhibitor for the rehabilitation of a bridge deck. It also includes the results of a programme for protecting and rehabilitating concrete bridges in America. (A) For the covering abstract see IRRD 867793.
