ZLA has been designed to operate as an additional anode that replaces all the anodic areas of the reinforced concrete structure. It is applied to the surface of the concrete.
ZLA consists of a pure zinc sheet (> 99.95%) with a thickness of 250 microns (but variable according to operational and durability needs) coupled to an ionic conductive adhesive electrolyte and protected by a polypropylene interlayer that preserves it. from any contamination (overall thickness: 1.2 mm).
ZLA is applied directly to the concrete surface: an electrical connection is created between the zinc surface and the concrete reinforcement through a metal cable.
