Fwd: Re: Epoxy Coated Rebar

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
In my opiinion epoxy coated bars are a complete waste of time and 
I do not know your applications but for normal levels of protection 
in sea-water it is better to have a good, dense concrete(use admixtures or
cements, vibrate well) with adequate cover and quality.
For extraordinary levels of protection use cathodic methods. They are 
expensive to install and also have ongoing costs.
