Cathodic Protection Technology
Impressed current cathodic protection systems for reinforcing steel- in- concrete
CPT’s mission is to provide scientifically proven long-term corrosion protection with integrity and innovation. CPT’s experience in implementing impressed current cathodic protection systems on millions of square feet and thousands of balconies have given us singular insight to what works and what doesn’t.
Although there are many options in the market place today – NACE (National Association of Corrosion Engineers) and the DOT (Department of Transportation) are independent organizations that support the fact that only impressed current cathodic protection is designed to STOP ongoing concrete craking and spalling due to corrosion of reinforcing steel. CPT's manufacturer, Matcor, leads the industry in innovative development of cathodic protection technology for reinforcing steel in concrete structures. Matcor designed the first impressed cathodic protection system for a concrete bridge deck in 1975 and today, hundreds of buildings and support structures, highway surfaces and bridge decks, parking garages, marine and other concrete structures are protected by their cathodic protection systems and products.
Every structure has its own unique characteristics due to location, construction methods, previous repairs, and corrosion problems. Because of this, we design and manufacture a number of steel-in-concrete cathodic protection systems using impressed current anodes to fit a wide variety of situations. Impressed current cathodic protection systems from CPT are not simply materials delivered to the job site. The systems include all components, installation drawings and instructions, on-site technical assistance, written reports and documentation, final system commissioning/energizing and maintenance instructions for system monitoring and monthly data analysis.
