CONCRETE CURING AND SURFACE PROTECTION WITH LINSEED OIL

TESTS OF THE DURABILITY OF REINFORCED, AIR-ENTRAINED CONCRETE SAMPLES UNDER CONDITIONS OF FREEZING AND THAWING IN AN AQUEOUS SOLUTION OF 2 PER CENT SODIUM CHLORIDE ARE DESCRIBED. CONDITIONS OF TEST INCLUDE 3000-PSI AND 5000-PSI CONCRETES CONTAINING CRUSHED DENSE SANDSTONE COARSE AGGREGATE AND 3000-PSI CONCRETE CONTAINING CRUSHED POROUS LIMESTONE COARSE AGGREGATE. DETERIORATION OF ALL THREE CONCRETES PROTECTED WITH ONE OR MORE COATINGS OF LINSEED OIL IN MINERAL SPIRITE IS COMPARED WITH THE SAME CONCRETES WITHOUT PROTECTION. DETERIORATION OF THE 3000-PSI CONCRETE CONTAINING CRUSHED POROUS LIMESTONE COARSE AGGREGATE AND PROTECTED WITH A COATING OF WATER-EMULSIFIABLE LINSEED OIL APPLIED AS A CURING COMPOUND IS COMPARED WITH THE SAME CONCRETE WITHOUT PROTECTION. IT IS APPARENT FROM THE PHOTOGRAPHIC RECORD THAT BOTH TYPES OF PROTECTION ARE EFFECTIVE IN IMPEDING THE PROGRESS OF FREEZE-THAW DAMAGE AND THAT PERIODIC RETREATMENT WITH LINSEED OIL FURTHER ARRESTS THE DAMAGE UNDER THE CONDITIONS OF TEST NOTED. /AUTHOR/
