Concrete Sealing Concept and A Waterborne Acrylic Solution for Concrete Sealing Application, Ömer Faruk ŞEN, Field Marketing Manager, OrganikKimya
Waterproofing is a very well-known phenomena and thanks to the standards and regulations modern buildings are being constructed with proper water proofing solutions. On the other hand, even in standard modern buildings there are some “overlooked” areas and surfaces that are generally exposed to ponding water directly (such as basement parking lots etc..). Due their very porous and matrix structures, when cementitious systems are exposed to water (not only high pressure water but even ponding water) water can easily penetrate into the system and can cause serious problems. Reduction in strength, carbonatization and efflorescence are some of those issues. In this study a standard concrete surface which has been coated with an acrylic water-borne emulsion is being compared with the blank (uncoated) surface in terms of different mechanical properties.
