Cathodic Protection

Cathodic Protection - Enabling our infrastructure to work harder

Corrosion Service has never been shy to take on a unique and challenging project that does not conform to the normal. It does not matter whether the project is to design cathodic protection systems for 400 Soviet era oil wells in Southern Iraq or to assess DC Interference and corrosion risk for a solar farm in Ontario, Corrosion Service has the skills and experience required to ensure a successful outcome.

Cathodic protection is the most common electrochemical technique used to prevent corrosion on buried metallic structures where the applied coating has failed or been damaged exposing bare metal to soil or another electrolyte such as sea water.
