For many years industrial companies have fought to protect steel reinforced concrete from corrosion. The prime causes of corrosion in concrete include salt, chloride and de-icing treatments. The salt seeps into the concrete and erodes the steel reinforcing bar (re-bar) causing cracks and spalling in the concrete and eventually the potential for failure of the structure.

One very effective, long-term solution is metal or thermal spraying the concrete with zinc or a variety of zinc alloys. This is a technology that protects or extends the life of a wide variety of products in the most hostile environments.
