Cathodic corrosion protection

There are several approaches to fighting corrosion. In addition to traditional prevention consultancy services, suicorr also offers active prevention in the form of cathodic protection (CP).

This method employs a sacrificial anode made of a base metal alloy (for example, zinc or magnesium) which corrodes, generating the required protective current to ensure the metal to be protected does not corrode. When utilising impressed current anodes, high-resistance materials such as titanium are used as the anodes and supplied with the required protective current via rectifiers. The protective current can then be regulated and monitored using the protective current feed. The CP therefore provides both protection and infrastructure monitoring.
