Any Match
Multiple words entered will return results for any matches of any of the words. ie: red car - will return matches for red car, red, and car.
Exact Match
Use double quotation marks (") around search terms and multiple words to search for an exact phrase match. ie: "red car" - Only "red car" matches will be returned (not red or car).
Partial Word
Use the asterisk (*) to create a wildcard at the end of a search term if your word is incomplete. ie: comp* - will return matches for complex, computer, and any word beginning with the letters "comp".

Galvashield® Fusion™ T2 Anode for Concrete

fusion-logo.pngFusion Technology, the next generation of cathodic protection for reinforced concrete, combines the power of impressed current cathodic protection with the maintenance-free performance of galvanic anodes.

The Galvashield Fusion T2 hybrid anode attacks the root cause of corrosion with a powerful dose of electrochemical treatment.

Galvashield Fusion provides two-stage protection within a single embedded anode unit.

  • Stage 1 ‐ an intense burst of self-generated electrical current strikes the reinforcing steel and passivates rebar corrosion
  • Stage 2 ‐ after the impressed current phase, galvanic anodes shield the structure from future corrosion damage
  • The novel approach naturally switches from Stage 1 to Stage 2 without external monitoring or human intervention

Galvashield Fusion T2 anodes are Type 2 anodes installed into holes drilled into sound concrete to protect actively corroding reinforcing steel in corrosive conditions for up to 30+ years.

Galvashield Fusion is the ideal solution for long term, low maintenance preservation of structures suffering from corrosion-induced concrete damage such as:

  • Bridge rehabilitation and preservation
  • Parking structure restoration
  • Condominium balcony repair
  • Residential and commercial building rehabilitation in a coastal environment
  • Industrial concrete maintenance and repair
  • Repair of corroding piers and wharfs in a saltwater marine environment

Fusion Technology Benefits

  • Preserves structures
  • Shortens the construction schedule because less anodes are required compared to traditional galvanic anodes
  • Eliminates monitoring and maintenance requirements as there are no external electrical components
  • Engineers can economically protect the entire structure or selectively target corrosion "hotspots" based on project requirements
