Our campaign aims to highlight the extensive amount of corroding steelwork across the UK and Ireland.
Protecting steelwork correctly on day one can help to save money spent on replacement or maintenance, which can be much more expensive than the initial cost of protection.
An even more important aspect of correct corrosion protection is the contribution it can make to a more sustainable built environment.

It is estimated that nearly 4% of global GDP is lost to corrosion annually across the world.

The thing about rust
Have you ever wondered what is going on with rusty steelwork?
Why does it happen and exactly what is it?
The reason rust presents so often in our built environment, infrastructure and industrial projects, is largely due to the strengths not the weaknesses of steel, perhaps our most popular construction material.
As the backbone of most modern industrial economies, steel is versatile, flexible and strong, a vital national asset that benefits from being protected from day one, because as soon as you expose steel to the elements, it begins to corrode.
