The purpose of this technical committee report is to provide specifiers, designers, and corrosion control personnel information to control the corrosion of conventional reinforcing steel in hydraulic cement concrete using corrosion inhibiting admixtures.
This report describes several types of materials used as corrosion inhibiting admixtures, their selection and evaluation, their proportioning into freshly mixed concrete, and their effects on fresh and hardening/hardened concrete. Corrosion inhibiting admixtures may help delay corrosion initiation and extend the interval of corrosion propagation.
New for 2018! This NACE International state-of-the-art report contains information about materials that provide a corrosion-resistant alternative to plain carbon steel reinforcing bar (rebar). The report is intended for use by engineers when considering the use of alternative concrete reinforcement and post- or prestressing strand materials with higher corrosion resistance than that of conventional carbon steel alloys.
