Re: Concrete exposed to seawater

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I recommend using twice normal  cover. A pier in South Laguna had to be torn down only 20 years after it was built due to corrosion of rebars. Also use high cement content, such as 7 sack/cu. yd. min.
Also use epoxy coated rebar. I have had a lot of experience with the Santa Monica Pier.
