Effect of Concrete Hydrophobation against Chloride Penetration

Abstract:

Article Preview

For concrete structures in chloride containing environments, hydrophobic surface treatments are often used as an additional protective measure for protecting the embedded steel against corrosion. In recent years, silane-based hydrophobic agents that can be used as concrete admixtures for making the whole concrete hydrophobic have also been introduced. In the present paper, the protective effectiveness of such an admixture against chloride penetration has been investigated. For comparison, some field investigations on the effectiveness of a traditional surface hydrophobation of two concrete harbor structures based on similar products are also briefly reported.
