Repair of chloride-contaminated or carbonated concrete structures can result in accelerated corrosion problems on the reinforcing steel in adjacent concrete areas. Galvashield XP anodes provide localized corrosion protection in reinforced concrete buildings and structures. The palm-sized anode consists of a galvanic zinc core surrounded by an active cementitious matrix. These anodes are designed to reduce the ring anode corrosion commonly associated with concrete patch repairs and delay the onset of future corrosion.
