Wireless NDT Corrosion Detection
A non-destructive testing tool for detailed corrosion evaluation of reinforced concrete structures without the need to have an electrical connection to the rebar.
ICOR® is a unique NDT device for the condition assessment of reinforced concrete structures that can be used for:
Giatec iCOR® benefits from the patented CEPRA technologythat makes it possible to estimate the corrosion rate of rebar through a non-invasive approach. This means that the need for connecting the device to the rebar (which is the case for other commercial devices) is eliminated in iCOR®.
This makes iCOR® the most convenient corrosion rate measurement device in the field as well as offering an innovative research tool for laboratory studies.
We have had a lot of success with using the iCOR for laboratory and field studies. The simplicity of its use, along with the speed, functionality and portability, makes it very suitable for field and laboratory use. Giatec has always been very helpful on the technical support aspect and have put all the possible effort in making our experience with the device successful. With further developments, I believe the device will become the future of electrochemical corrosion monitoring.

Overall I am very satisfied with this device. It has proved to be robust on-site and I am confident in the results that I see. My favorite feature is that data on corrosion rate, concrete resistivity and half-cell potential can be recorded simultaneously. These three pieces of information are essential when interpreting the rate of corrosion deterioration. I’m looking forward to getting back our team’s latest results from our current project using the iCOR.
