Hampton Discovers the Benefit of Using PERMAFORM® with ConmicShield®
ConShield Technologies, Inc.

In 2000, the manholes near City Hall in Hampton, Virginia, were identified as being severely deteriorated from high levels of hydrogen sulfide gas which fed bacteria to form Microbiologically Induced Corrosion. When unprotected concrete is exposed to Hydrogen Sulfide Gas, bacteria can quickly grow creating sulfuric acid which allows structural damage in just a few short years.
