About Vector Corrosion Technologies
Prestressed Concrete Pile Corrosion
in Tidal Zone Vector Corrosion Technologies is the leading full-service supplier of corrosion mitigation products and services for reinforced concrete and masonry structures including bridges, parking garages, buildings, marine structures and industrial facilities.
Vector currently has offices in Canada, the UK and the United States through which we serve clients worldwide. The company employs over 75 professional engineers, technologists, draughtsmen, clerical support staff, and field personnel.
The hallmark of a Vector solution is the unsurpassed integrity, expertise and experience of our people. We will work with you to identify the root cause of the problem, not just the symptoms, and we will work with you to develop practical solutions to get the job done. Then, we will do the job right and that is the way we’ve been doing it in North America and around the globe. The result – innovative, cost effective concrete restoration and corrosion mitigation techniques that have allowed us to earn our customers’ long standing trust and respect.
Bridge Column Corrosion
from De-icing Salt In the mid 1980’s, Vector’s principals became involved in the installation, monitoring, and testing of cathodic protection systems including the largest vertical and overhead (pier and beam) impressed current cathodic protection project completed in Canada.
In the late 1980’s and throughout the 1990’s, Vector played an important role in the research and implementation of the Electrochemical Chloride Extraction technology evaluated under the FHWA Strategic Highway Research Programme.
In the late 1990’s Vector Corrosion Technologies involvement in the development of galvanic protection systems for reinforced concrete structures began with the introduction of the Galvashield and later the Galvanode product range of galvanic anodes for concrete.
In 2006, Vector acquired the intellectual property and assets of Post-Tech Construction Technologies related to the evaluation, repair and corrosion mitigation of post-tensioned structures.
In 2009, Vector acquired the rights and assets from Fosroc International for Fosroc Corrosion Solutions (electrochemical corrosion mitigation technologies for concrete) including electrochemical chloride extraction (desalination), realkalisation and embedded galvanic anodes for concrete.
Today, Vector provides the widest range of products and services to mitigate corrosion of reinforcing steel in concrete structures. Our range of corrosion mitigation systems includes galvanic protection, impressed current cathodic protection, and electrochemical treatments such as chloride extraction and re-alkalisation. We also supply specialty corrosion solutions for corrosion problems found in post-tensioned and prestressed structures, marine pilings and steel frame masonry structures.
Corrosion Failure of Post-tensioned CableVector also offers a wide range of corrosion services for consultants, contractors and owners such as evaluation, testing, design assistance, technical support, field training, system installation and monitoring.
Vector is heavily involved in the advancement of in corrosion repair industry though active participation in leading associations such as the Corrosion Protection Association (CPA), Concrete Repair Association (CRA), American Concrete Institute (ACI), International Concrete Repair Institute (ICRI), and National Association of Corrosion Engineers (NACE).
