Half-Cell Corrosion Potential 

Half Cell Corrosion Potential mapping offers a rapid, cost-effective and non-destructive way for corrosion assessment of steel in concrete.

The test provides valuable information on the likelihood of corrosion, and helps in the quality assurance of concrete repair and rehabilitation.

Several standard associations have standardized the test procedure including the ASTM C 876UNI 10174, RILEM TC 154 and MTO.

Depending on the measured half cell corrosion potential value, the probability of active corrosion is determined.

Electrical Resistivity Tests

Electrical Resistivity tests provide a rapid, and cost-effective solution for quality control and evaluating durability performance of concrete structures.

Electrical Resistivity methods area already replacing labour-intensive and time-consuming tests such as the “Rapid Chloride Permeability Test-RCPT”. Electrical Resistivity measurements can be used to evaluate corrosion rate, chloride diffusion coefficient, and water absorption.
