NEW TECHNIQUE HALTS CORROSIVE EFFECT OF SALT ON CONCRETE STRUCTURES

The corrosive nature of sodium chloride (salt) is well known. A new technology termed the Norcure(R) Electrochemical Chloride Removal System actually removes the cause of the damage. It has been successfully utilized on projects in both North America and Europe. The Norcure(R) process is an electrochemical method of removing chloride ions and migrating them out of the concrete resulting in extending the service life of salt contaminated structures. Using this method, concrete can be rejuvenated without the inconvenience and disruption of conventional methods which are noisy, dirty and time consuming.
