Presents guidelines for cathodic protection of reinforcing steel in concrete structures. The guidelines are limited to impressed current cathodic protection systems for new or existing atmospherically exposed reinforced concrete and are not intended for application to prestressed concrete. Criteria described include 100 mV polarization development/decay, statistical distribution analysis, and E-log I analysis.
This NACE International standard practice includes guidelines for surface preparation, material requirements, application, and handling of hot- and cold-applied wax and component wrappers and wax-based tape coating systems for the protection of underground pipe, fittings, and valves. The standard outlines material requirements for hot- and cold-applied wax coatings, and handling of the coated components, and includes five tables that provide material requirements and references to standard test methods for the various coating materials discussed. This standard is intended for use by corrosion control personnel, design engineers, project managers, purchasers, and construction engineers and managers.
