NACE TM0294-2016, “Testing of Embeddable Impressed Current Anodes for Use in Cathodic Protection of Atmospherically Exposed Steel-Reinforced Concrete”

Two test methods for evaluating - to an expected lifetime criterion - embeddable anode materials (such as titanium (Ti) mesh) for cathodic protection (CP) of atmospherically exposed steel-reinforced concrete.

This NACE International standard test method provides users and manufacturers of embeddable anodes a test method for evaluating the anode material to an expected lifetime criterion. It is applicable to embeddable anode materials, such as titanium (Ti) mesh, commonly used for cathodic protection (CP) of atmospherically exposed steel-reinforced concrete. The test method presents two methods for evaluating the anode material; Test Method Part A is intended to evaluate whether an embeddable anode material complies with minimum required specifications of design life expectancy at rated current output. Test Method Part B is a quicker test to ensure that a sample from a particular batch of material is suitable. The test methods are not applicable to surface-mounted anodes or conductive coating materials. Key words: accelerated life tests, cathodic protection, concrete, embeddable anodes, impressed current anodes, mixed metal oxide (MMO) anode, steel-reinforced concrete, TG 472, titanium mesh anodes,
