Carbon textiles as anode material for cathodic corrosion protection (CP) have been used in several reinforced steel structures. However, experience with durability is limited. To date, various influencing factors have been discovered and systematic tests on different carbon textiles with different impregnation materials in various environmental media have been carried out and considered the degradation of the impregnation materials. In this work the boundary potentials are determined at which
