FIELD GUIDE TO CONCRETE REPAIR APPLICATION PROCEDURES
Installation of Embedded Galvanic Anodes
Embedded galvanic anodes reduce the corrosion activity of the reinforcing steel in the vicinity of the installed anode. Anodes are installed in areas of the concrete where there is a high likelihood of corrosion occurring or recurring. Type 1 anodes are installed to provide improved protection of reinforcing steel in chloride-contaminated or carbonated concrete surrounding a patch repair. Type 2 anodes are used in sound chloride-contaminated or carbonated concrete to prevent the onset of delamination or spalling of the concrete.
