✅ Works on asphalt-covered concrete
The Concrete Deterioration Process:
There are many factors that lead to the corrosion of steel in concrete. Environmental factors are the greatest concern when dealing with concrete near marine environments, such as bridges and dams. Elements such as wind, water, river current, temperature change, and deicing salt are all corrosion causing agents affecting the strength of reinforced concrete. In addition, the lowering of the concrete’s PH level due to chlorides, carbonation, and acids within the slab are also factors contributing to the corrosion of reinforcing steel.
The deterioration of concrete begins out of sight, well within the slab. As rust starts to form, it occupies more space than the steel originally took up, resulting in the formation of small cracks and eventually delamination occurs.
