SELECTING COATINGS AND LININGS FOR CONCRETE IN CHEMICAL ENVIRONMENTS

This article provides the criteria and a foundation for selecting coatings used to protect concrete structures and to decrease their permeability in chemical environments. The characteristics of the concrete and the design of the concrete structure are paramount in making an intelligent selection. Regulatory requirements also influence selection. Other criteria, such as exposure conditions, can be defined by considering moisture intrusion, exposure environment, exposure duration, design life and reliability, and traffic and other physical exposures. The coatings and linings described include masonry, thermoplastic sheet, reinforced or unreinforced liquid-applied linings, thin and thick film systems, and elastomeric systems.
