Application or installation of corrosion countermeasures such as specialized below-grade coatings or cathodic protection (sacrificial anodes) can help extend the useful life of steel poles and towers by reducing or eliminating corrosion activity.
Coatings are the primary mitigation method for protecting steel structures below ground line. Coatings create a durable barrier which helps to protect the steel from its surrounding environment. Coatings can add long-term protection to steel structures and effectively extend their useful service life
Attaching sacrificial anodes to steel structures and placing them in the same soil provides an additional layer of corrosion mitigation. Cathodic protection does not eliminate corrosion activity, it simply transfers the corrosion activity from the steel structure to the anodes and they "sacrifice" themselves to protect the steel.
