Corrosion of the reinforcing steel is the #1 cause of concrete damage, but it is often overlooked when making local patch repairs. PatchGuardTM galvanic anodes are designed to extend the life of patch repairs by providing cathodic protection to the steel in the most vulnerable area surrounding a new concrete patch. When electrically connected to the steel PatchGuardTM forms a galvanic cell and preferentially corrodes/consumes, while offering cathodic protection to the steel reinforcement.
Rather than the traditional approach of attaching galvanic anodes to exposed steel in the patch repair, PatchGuardTM anodes are located within the surrounding, sound concrete. Protective current is delivered directly to the steel outside the patch repair - which is at greatest corrosion risk. As PatchGuardTM is positioned within the host concrete; there is no compromise in the quality of the concrete repair material.
70% of repairs deteriorate within 10 years. Why? The answer is simple. These repairs do not address the underlying problem: corrosion. PatchGuardTM is a cost-effective way to proactively address corrosion and extend the life of the repairs being made. PatchGuardTM galvanic anodes can provide effective corrosion protection for up to 20 years with no monitoring or operation required.

ZEBRA is our patented Impressed Current Cathodic Protection (ICCP) conductive paint anode. ZEBRA is traffic-bearing and can be used on a variety of applications to achieve long-term corrosion protection. ZEBRA is ideally suited structures such as parking garages, balconies & catwalks, elevated swimming pools, and more.
CASSETTE is a patented, surface-mounted, MMO Titanium ribbon anode used for ICCP in humid environments. CASSETTE is minimally invasive & allows for ICCP system performance without needing to encapsulate the anode in concrete. CASSETTE greatly reduces labor on installation over traditional embedded ribbon ICCP systems.
Camur is a state-of-the-art, cloud-based control and monitoring system for cathodic protection. The system offers users the ability to remotely access system information, make adjustments, and obtain real-time readings on system performance. Camur is fully scalable to accommodate growing corrosion & structural health monitoring needs.
