The fundamental requirements for the physical, chemical and electrochemical stability of repairs to reinforced concrete structures are compared with data typically available for proprietary products. Suggestions are made for a test approach to improve the evaluation of repair materials and to enable mixes to be designed for specific applications. Many currently available proprietary repair mixtures are general formulations for cosmetic use and/or corrosion control. They are likely to have poor structural characteristics. They are ill matched to concrete so they may not be durable and are likely to crack or delaminate due to excessive long term thermal and shrinkage movements.
