APPLICATION OF SCANNING ELECTRON MICROSCOPY OF BUILDING MATERIALS

Scanning electron microsocpy has been applied to the study of several building materials at the Building Research Station. This paper reviews the application of this method and also describes the sample preparation techniques. Materials examined include metals, cement hydration products, glass ceramics, structural ceramics, glass fiber reinforced plaster and cement and weathered paint surfaces. Conclusions are drawn as to the applicability of informative value of this method of studying the surface structure of materials. /TRRL/
