Realkalisation and electrochemical chloride removal techniques, developed for rehabiliting carbonated and chloride-containing structures, are presented. Electrolysis and electromigration mechanisms and consequences as well as electrochemical conditions at the reinforcement surface are discussed and compared with cathodic protection ones. Furthermore, possible side effects are commented.


Se presentan técnicas electroquímicas de realcanización y extracción de cloruros, desarrolladas con el fin de rehabilitar estructuras carbonatadas y que contengan cloruros. Se discuten y comparan los mecanismos y consecuencias de la electrólisis y la electromigración, así como las condiciones electroquímicas en la superficie de las armaduras con los de protección catódica. Se comentan, también, los posibles efectos secundarios.
