EFFECTS OF CORROSION
CRACK CORROSION | BLISTER CORROSION | SPALLING CORROSION

REVAL® = DURABILITY
During their life, structures should resist:

Atmospheric and meteorological agents
Aggressive environmental attacks
Dynamic and static forces
Abnormal and unforeseeable factors such as fire, earthquakes and floods.

Reval 1.4307 (304L), 1.4404 (316L) and especially 1.4462 (318-duplex) show an exceptional resistance to high temperatures and to different pH levels in the concrete.
REVAL offers economic advantages in the medium and long run.

The initial cost of REVAL is outweighed by saving all maintenance costs.
Consultants, designers and builders of roads and bridges see the benefit of stainless steel reinforcement for cost saving and reduced disruption to traffic.
That has been understood by governments.

The Highway Agency in the UK has issued the “Design Manual for Roads and Bridges” Volume 1, Section 3, part 15, BA 84/02. It recommends that stainless steel can be “used instead of normal carbon steel” to eliminate traffic disruption.
