Corrosion of Copper in Concrete Concrete

1998-9-1  A: According to petrographer Bernie Erlin, copper won't corrode in concrete unless soluble chlorides are present. When copper is adjacent to steel reinforcement, and an electrolyte such as chloride is present, steel corrosion is likely to occur due to galvanic action. Under these circumstances, you should insulate the copper with a suitable coating.

Copper Corrosion Behavior in Simulated Concrete-Pore

2020-4-4  Concrete-embedded metals corrode in fresh and humid concrete, where the direct metal oxidation in the pore alkaline environment leads to changes at the metal interface during the curing time. The corrosion process can stop when a protective oxide film is formed on the metal surface, the so-called passive layer.

2020-9-20  Once corrosion has initiated, a very aggressive environment will be produced inside pits. Corroding and passive rebars in concrete show a difference in corrosion potential of up to 0.5 V; thus, macrocell generates and current flows between these areas . The current was flowing from anodic areas to surrounding cathodic areas.

Corrosion and Concrete Concrete Construction

Copper is only a problem if chlorides are present and then the corrosion is small. Corrosion can be reduced by not laying pipe directly on a sand, earth or vermiculite base layer and then casting the concrete over it. This can be avoided by supporting pipes on small concrete blocks. Wood blocks should not be used because they can cause corrosion.

Detecting Invisible Corrosion in ... - Concrete

Corrosion of reinforcing steel is an electrochemical process: that is, both a flow of electricity and a chemical change are involved. Detecting and measuring this electric current flow helps us assess the degree of unseen corrosion activity. To record this information, half cell procedures standardized in ASTM C 976 have been developed.
