Can somebody shed more light on the wisdom of using concrete and steel
in seawalls construction in place of PVC (vinyl)? Any chemist who can
explain to me how saltwater reacts with steel or/and concrete?
I understand construction companies are shifting to PVC (Vinyl), which
is not susceptible to saltwater corrosion. Check the latest press
release from Vinyl News Service, available at,http://
In my view, I think it makes sense, and I guess any material engineer
will agree with me, to resort to more durable and cost effective
building materials like vinyl.
