LoCem® Conductive packing mortar with C-Puck I,II or III - Sacrificial anode option - Corrosion Management System: New Build

Verified by manufacturer 1 day ago

C-Probe Systems

LoCem CPM is a mortar that activates a zinc anode. When connected to the metal structure, zinc sacrificial anodes create a galvanic cell, diverting the flow of electrons and sacrificing themselves.

Application

Corrosion protection of steel within reinforced concrete in new construction.


Applications include bridges, buildings, car parks and any kind of civil infrastructure.

Description

C-Puck is a Galvanic (puck) anode that is attached to steel to provide a bimetallic corrosion cell where the most base metal (the anode) corrodes or sacrifices itself in order to protect the more noble metal (steel) to which it is attached.


This anode protects the incipient (ring) anode area that can form around the perimeter of a concrete repair.


It requires no external power supply but its performance can be assessed in a similar way to impressed current CP systems.


Benefits:

  • Provides flexibility with the design parameters influencing life, such as steel density, chloride concentration and humidity.
  • No chemical activation needed
  • Low carbon and ESG compliant when combining zinc and geopolymer manufacturing processes


Compliance:


This anode and packing mortar are manufactured by C-Probe and compliance tested at source to meet:

  • DnV RPB401
  • ISO 12696:2016
  • NACE TM0190 Mortar: EN1504-4
  • PAS8820:2016


C-Puck offers a flexible corrosion management solution designed for all reinforced concrete structures.


It can be used within and outside repair patches to ensure these concrete repairs are protected from incipient anode formation for the long term.
