The first step in determining the need for corrosion control is to assess the risk of corrosion; it is important to identify whether there is a future risk of steel corrosion for both new and existing structures.
For a new structure, the following will need to be considered:
Service life requirements
If the risk of corrosion is considered to be significant then a corrosion prevention system can be installed during construction.
Existing structures require a corrosion risk assessment based on the current condition and the required service life. A condition survey should be carried out; if a risk of corrosion is identified then preventative action should be taken to stop it occurring or reduce the risk.
Prevention may be as simple as the renewal of defective floor sealants and cleaning out of drains in a car park; a more serious problem or more aggressive environment may require a more complex solution.
