Re: Chemical Resistant Concrete Coating

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
ACI 515.1R, A Guide to the Use of Waterproofing, Dampproofing, Protective and Decorative Barrier Systems for Concrete, discusses methods of protecting floors against severe chemical attack, such as might occur in chemical or food processing plants. The current (1985) document contains some good general information but is severely dated.  Since there have been considerable changes in the coating industry over the last 20 years, the information may be somewhat misleading.  In particular, there is no discussion of VOC limits.

Pretty interesting your info. By the way, I understand
that there is an ACI code or recommendation about this
issue, ACI 515.1 R. Are your data meeting these provisions?
