Chloride content in concrete

In the run-up to the renovation of a large concrete structure, the determination of the acid-soluble chloride content in the concrete with well over 200 samples was one of the most important tests. Higher chloride contents are critical for reinforced concrete structures, as they can lead to corrosion of the reinforcing steels in the presence of moisture. If the chloride content is too high, these areas, in which e.g. de-icing salt […]
