Study on the Effects of Realkalization Rehabilitation Method Auxiliary Alcamines Inhibitors in Simulative Experiment


Article Preview

In this paper, the feasibility of inhibitor auxiliary re-alkalization was investigated. The effect of realkalization auxiliary inhibitor repair technique was studied by simulative experiment. It studied the changes of electrochemical parameters of the natural carbonated reinforced concrete during the electrochemical realkalization in 1mol/L Na2CO3 solution and the mixed solution of 1mol/L Na2CO3 and 1 mol/L DMEA , as well as the impedance spectroscopy and polarization curves in the process of relaxation. The results showed that: there appears to be no effect of DMEA on the corrosion potential and the impedance of the steel in the process of realkalization. That was, the performance was the same as that in the sodium carbonate solution except corrosion current of rebar with DMEA which showed much lower. But of the samples which the DMEA existed in the electrolyte was significantly shorter at the same relaxation time after realkalization. At the same relaxation time the corrosion potential was more positive and the corrosion current density was smaller. It improved significantly the effect of realkalization.
