What is Concrete Corrosion

Concrete corrosion refers to the gradual degradation and deterioration of concrete structures due to various factors. Corrosive substances, such as sulfur compounds, salty or acidic water, and aggressive chemicals, can penetrate the concrete's porous structure, reacting with its components and leading to corrosion. Sulfur compounds, often found in industrial areas, can cause concrete to disintegrate over time. Furthermore, exposure to saltwater or acidic environments accelerates the corrosion process, as the chloride ions or hydrogen ions attack the concrete. In addition, certain microbes, such as sulfate-reducing bacteria, can produce sulfuric acid as a byproduct of their metabolic activity, further contributing to concrete corrosion. Chlorides, nitrates, and fluorides are also known to accelerate such degradation processes by penetrating the concrete and initiating chemical reactions that disintegrate its structure. Overall, these corrosive factors pose significant challenges to maintaining the integrity and longevity of concrete structures.

Concrete Corrosion Repair

Corrosion not only weakens the concrete but also impacts the integrity of the reinforcing steel within it. Ignoring concrete corrosion and not fixing it will cause it to continue to weaken and lose functionality. 

With the services offered by Acculift Foundation Repair your concrete corrosion can be repaired. One of our licensed structural engineers will assess your unique situation and provide you with a game plan.

Repair Strategies

The method of concrete repair involves a thorough removal process, where any cracked or degraded concrete is carefully eliminated to a depth of 20 to 30 mm behind the reinforcing bars. The purpose of this is to fully expose any rusted reinforcement and remove any contaminated concrete near the steel. Once the corroded material is cleared out, the steel is either treated or replaced to ensure structural integrity. Afterward, concrete repair mortars are applied to the surface to restore its strength and durability. These repair mortars are enhanced with polymer modifications, which contribute to improved adhesion and resistance against the penetration of unwanted contaminants.
