Life 365

A powerful new tool has been developed to assist engineers in evaluating corrosion control strategies. Professor Mike Thomas at the University of Toronto lead this important effort. Cortec has reviewed the Beta version of the service life model. Preliminary results indicate MCI®-2005 can extend service life to 75 years for parking structures. The final version is available online for further information clickhere. The Concrete Corrosion Inhibitors Association, is about to begin a test program which will measure chloride diffusion and chloride threshold values for concrete. This important collaborative work is needed to develop input parameters for the service life prediction model. Data is expected to be available in about 6 months time.
