Event tip: Cathodic corrosion protection – cost reduction and climate protection in the construction industry

Cathodic corrosion protection – Rust-free and sustainable steel structures in the building industry. How the use of zinc is changing the construction industry while offering economic and ecological benefits.
In Germany, more than 100 billion euros rust away every year. There are great opportunities to protect steel structures from corrosion in a raw material-efficient and environmentally friendly way. The corrosion protection of large steel renovation and replacement buildings by spray galvanizing is already common practice in many European countries. In Germany, too, more and more bridge structures are being protected against corrosion by spray galvanizing at municipal and state level. This corrosion protection technology is characterized by sustainability and environmental compatibility. This is also demonstrated by the recently opened Lohring Bridge in Bochum. As one of the most important bridges in Bochum’s urban area, it is permanently protected against corrosion with zinc.
But how do thermal spray galvanizing and permanent corrosion protection with zinc work? A new VSVI-NRW training seminar with seven specialist presentations provides information on thermal spray galvanizing, hot-dip galvanizing, cathodic corrosion protection of concrete and the necessary planning principles.
