Polymersilicate concrete is used for structures of industrial buildings in many industries, where production processes form an acidic wet- gas operating environment. The lightweight polymer silicate shungizite concrete, proposed by the author for external walls, can also be attributed to these materials. The polymersilicate composition is based on the components of schungite and schungizite. The composition also included liquid glass, sodium silicofluoride and furyl alcohol. These ingredients are usually adopted for polymersilicate concrete. Previously, the author carried out the research of physical and mechanical properties of the composition. The components based on schungite and schungizite were chosen because of their high acid resistance. The issue of the corrosion resistance of reinforcement in light polymer-silicate concrete has not been studied enough. This article presents the results of investigations of the corrosion resistance of steel reinforcement in polymer silicate shungizit concrete. The investigations were carried out in an airy environment of high humidity and in solutions of sulfuric acid of various concentrations. After the established time limits for corrosion testing, the corrosion of reinforcement in samples was not observed. Such a result was obtained due to the dense structure of the material and high acid resistance of the constituent components on the basis of schungite and shungizite. There is no need for additional protection of the concrete surface to prevent corrosion of the reinforcement in it . The author recommends the use of the material for reinforced structures of external walls exposed to an acidic wet- gas operating environment.
