Influence of Water Repellent Surface Impregnation on Water Absorption Properties of Recycled Aggregate Concrete
This paper aimed to investigate the influence of using silane surface water repellent treatment on the capillary water absorption properties of recycled aggregate concrete. In this study, two types of coarse aggregate, natural aggregates and recycled aggregates were used, and the surface water repellent treatment of concrete was produced by brushing 100g/m2 and 200g/m2 of paste. It was found that the silane impregnation depth of recycled concrete was deeper than that of natural concrete, and the surface treatment was more effective in the improvement of capillary water absorption properties of recycled aggregate concrete than the natural aggregate concrete.
