Reinforcement rods get rusted at site or during storage before they are laid in concrete. The salts present in the rust can continue the rusting process inside the concrete. In marine atmosphere, corrosive salts enter into the pores of the concrete and bring about accelerated rusting of reinforcements leading to premature failure of structures. Under such extreme conditions it is necessary to give a protective coating to steel reinforcements before they are laid in concrete. in the midst of two well known systems to protect the steel, epoxy coating and galvanising, there seems to be another coating system based on inhibited cement slurry which is comparatively cheaper. A detailed report on the performance of the above coating system is presented in this paper.
