CALCAREOUS DEPOSITS ON CATHODICALLY PROTECTED STRUCTURES IN SEA WATER

The increasing use of cathodic protection for offshore structures in the North Sea has led to a renewal of interest in the role of calcareous deposits in corrosion protection. The deliberate formation of such deposits on steel to act as self-healing, anti-corrosive and anti-fouling coatings has been proposed. In the absence of published literature dealing specifically with the subject, it is the purpose of this paper to review current knowledge on the composition, structure/morphology, mechanism of formation and other relevant properties.
