Galvashield® Jacket Systems
Galvashield® Jacket Systems
Galvashield® Jacket Systems provide long-term, low-maintenance, global cathodic protection to prestressed or conventionally reinforced concrete and steel piles that are exposed to extremely corrosive marine environments.
Galvashield® Jacket Systems offer an all-inclusive repair and corrosion solution for marine pile consisting of custom fiberglass or modular PVC jacket with galvanic anode system tailored to the project requirements. The custom jacket and anode system are placed around the pile to create a protective galvanic encasement, also known as an integral pile jacket. Unlike traditional concrete jackets, epoxy grouted jackets, petrolatum and wax tapes, and fiberglass wraps, Galvashield® Jackets provide a protective on-going galvanic current to mitigate active corrosion.
Galvashield® Jacket Systems are available in a range of models and options to suit most any application and can provide an estimated 20 to 50+ year service life. Galvashield® Jacket Systems are custom-designed and manufactured to fit each project. For help selecting the right jacket system for your project, contact us.

Galvashield® Jacket System Selection
Tidal Plus Jacket
Galvashield® DAS Jackets
Utilizes an alkali-activated distributed anode system (DAS) to protect all adjacent steel from the water line to the atmospheric zone and everywhere inbetween. Alkali-activated anode systems can protect steel in all exposure conditions including seawater, brackish water, freshwater and dry land (non-marine). Uses FRP, Modular PVC stay-in-place forms or removable formwork.
Galvashield® Tidal Plus Jackets
Harnesses high purity bare zinc anodes placed inside a wicking fabric to boost zinc activation and extend the level of protection above the tidal zone into the splash and atmospheric zone. Can be used with FRP or Modular PVC stay-in-place formwork.
Galvashield® Tidal Jackets
Leverages high purity bare zinc mesh anodes to evenly distribute corrosion protection to the underlying structure, appropriate for tidal zone protection in seawater.
