Did you know… Concrete Corrosion Costs Australia over $26 billion annually!
Don’t let your structure become one of many concrete structures that do not meet there intended design life.
Don’t be fooled… Maintenance, on-going repairs, demolision and rebuilding can cost real money later on in life; a little more spent now, means a lot less spent later!
10 Rules for corrosion
- If you think it will not corrode, think again …
- Big picture and long-term thinking are very important.
- Controlling it starts at the design stage - on the drawing board/CAD terminal.
- Prevention is better than cure.
- Corrosion damage costs real money; consider the saying: "paying a little now (for prevention), or paying a lot later (for damage)".
- Enormous efforts of others have gone into developing professionally recognized codes, standards, specifications, guidelines, manuals … worthy of consulting.
- Many a small initial problem, if undetected or "conveniently" ignored, will eventually become a big (very inconvenient) problem that can no longer be ignored
- The temptation to "cut corners" can be great - but should be resisted.
- Every dollar spent on design improvements can save many dollars (perhaps a fortune) during the subsequent operational life.
- Corrosion damage does not only occur "in service", potential problems also lurk in manufacturing, assembly, storage, transportation, repairs, cleaning …
