Abstract: Without doubt, active corrosion protection of prestressing steels by cement grout can be one of the most economic and durable solutions, if properly executed. Numerous other corrosion protection systems which fulfill requirements such as controllability and exchangeability are available. This state-of-the-art report, prepared by a task group and approved by fib Commission 9 Reinforcing and prestressing materials and systems, concentrates exclusively on factory applied corrosion protection that can be produced in controlled processes which should assure a better quality than corrosion protection applied on site.
The report is addressed to designers and installers (executing persons) attempting to inform them about the various possibilities for industrially applied corrosion protection and to provide the necessary knowledge for their application.
