Feb 8, 2023  |  How to Use Galvanic Anodes to Extend the Life of New Concrete Structures
Dr. George Sergi, PhD
Vector Corrosion Technologies

Galvanic anodes in a brand-new structure? Thinking ahead about corrosion allows asset owners to be prepared for its eventuality while also removing the otherwise unavoidable repair cost and downtime. George Sergi, father of the original embedded galvanic anode for concrete, has prepared a How-to presentation for identifying high-risk elements and utilizing maintenance-free galvanic protection to extend the service life of concrete structures without the need for repair. This presentation is most beneficial for those currently specifying systems, those new to the industry or with a general interest in galvanic technology.

Jan 25, 2023  |  How to Design a Galvanic Anode System for Concrete Structures
David Simpson
Vector Corrosion Technologies
As the popularity of galvanic anodes for reinforced concrete increases, the design process continues to evolve and provides much more flexibility to design professionals than simply using the anode spacing tables in a product data-sheet. This how-to webinar will summarise the latest advancements in predicting embedded anode's long-term performance and demonstrate how this information is utilized in providing reliable designs. This presentation is most beneficial for those currently specifying systems, those new to the industry or with a general interest in galvanic technology for concrete.

Jun 8, 2022  |  Design Considerations for Galvanic Anodes
David Whitmore, P.Eng
Vector Corrosion Technologies

Over the past 20+ years, Vector Corrosion Technologies has learned a great deal about how galvanic anodes perform, age and protect steel in reinforced concrete over time. Variables like surface to mass ratio of the zinc core, the zinc core activation method and the environmental exposure conditions including the level of chloride contamination, moisture and temperature. In this presentation, Dave will be going beyond the datasheet to explain just how these factors govern the service life of zinc based cathodic protection systems.
