EPOXY RESIN COATINGS ON STEEL AND CONCRETE

Epoxy resin coatings on steel and concrete are analyzed. Epoxy resin formulations used to coat steel as protection against brine, including two-coat systems specifically recommended for this purpose, are discussed. A service test of the two-coat systems along with several other coatings to provide comparative data is described. In a field investigation of epoxy resin coatings on steel after two years of exposure, coatings are described and test specimens are presented. Epoxy resin formulations that might be used for waterproofing concrete surfaces are also discussed. Formulations 632-1255 and 632-1555 are recommended. The performance of these coatings and others usable is investigated. Coatings are described, and test specimens, procedure, and results are presented, indicating specimens with and without coating failure.
