ALKALINE MATERIAL LIBERATED INTO ATMOSPHERE FROM NEW CONCRETE

THE ODOR-PRODUCING SUBSTANCE CONTAINED IN THE AIR IN A NEWLY CONSTRUCTED CONCRETE HOUSE WAS EXAMINED. IT CONSISTS OF VERY SMALL PARTICLES DISPERSED IN THE AIR AFTER BEING EMITTED FROM THE CONCRETE BODY AND IS COMPOSED OF THE USUAL ELEMENTS CONTAINED IN RAW CEMENT. ITS ALKALINITY, SUPPOSED TO HAVE COME FROM CALCIUM, ATTACKS SOME SUBSTANCES USED IN ART OBJECTS, FOR INSTANCE, HARDENED LINSEED OIL, SILK, AND PIGMENTS. A FEW METHODS OF PREVENTING THE HARM ARE SUGGESTED, BUT FURTHER INVESTIGATION ON COATING MATERIALS IS NECESSARY. /AUTHOR/
