STUDY ON THE PROTECTION OF REINFORCED CONCRETE BY PENETRATIVE CORROSION INHIBITER . DURABILITY OF BUILDING MATERIALS AND COMPONENTS. PROCEEDINGS OF THE FIFTH INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE HELD IN BRIGHTON, NOVEMBER 7-9, 1990

Concrete structures have been damaged by the corrosion of the reinforcing bars due to chloride included in the concrete. Deterioration appears in the form of cracks and spalling of the concrete cover. This paper describes a coating method applied to the finished concrete surface with a special penetrative corrosion inhibiter which can penetrate and diffuse into the concrete by density-diffusion. The method proposed for preventing deterioration is focused on the ratio between nitrous oxide (NO2) given by the coat and chloride (Cl) contained in concrete and NO2 density diffusion achieved by the volume of coating allowing for the existing cracks.
