Corrosion – defined as the irreversible degradation or destruction of steel that occurs as a result of a reaction with its environment – has significant negative consequences, including property damage, high remediation costs, and even structural failure. According to research by the Curtin University of Technology, it may cost the Australian economy upwards of $30 billion annually.
The good news is that much of this cost is avoidable. As it stands, a lot of damage is caused by the use of substandard materials, poor workmanship, a lack of knowledge or insufficient attention to corrosion protection during the design phase of projects.
The best way to minimise the problem, in other words, is to employ sound corrosion management practices. But how should specifiers go about this? How are they able to tell whether their particular projects (or particular parts of their projects) are susceptible to corrosion? And in what circumstances should they seek the advice of a corrosion expert?
