Double Corrosion Protection (DCP) is a pre-grouted encapsulation of our steel tendons within a corrugated plastic sheath. Using DCP ensures durability and consistent long-term performance.
Our solutions are ideal for complicated engineering structures in need of immediate ground control with an enhanced lifespan. If an application has a service life greater than 24 months it is generally considered ‘permanent’ and should always have some type of corrosion protection incorporated into its design. The level of corrosion protection required is primarily dependent on the required service life and the aggressivity of the environment.
Double corrosion protection anchor, for the anchorage (unbonded length) and fixed length, it is assumed that ground condition is aggressive and requires the multiple-barrier layers as proving material in the tendon for unbonded length. In addition, Encapsulate tendons are composed of individual grease-filled strand sheaths with grout-filled smooth sheaths used in unboned length. For bonded length, it is also assumed that there is an aggressive ground condition so that multiple barrier layers with encapsulation are provided across the full length.
