Corrosion is a major issue in the U.S. costing an estimated $276 billion dollars a year and damaging our infrastructure.* Corrosion is the destruction or deterioration of a metal or ally substrate by direct chemical or electrochemical attack. Environmental conditions affect the rate of destruction/deterioration. The Federal Highway Administration has stated that cathodic protection is the only rehabilitative technique proven to stop corrosion in salt-contaminated structures, regardless of chloride content.
The Lifejacket® Cathodic Bridge Protection System and the Lifejacket® Dowel offered by Jarden Zinc Products utilize proven zinc anode technology to provide long-term solutions to corrosion issues for both steel and steel reinforced concrete structures as well as concrete highway pavement subjected to premature failure as a result of exposure to marine or deicing salts.
