Coatings for chemical resistance

Coatings for chemical resistance

Coatings for chemical resistance

what typical coatings does anyone know of for dealing with concrete where chemicals could spill? acids etc.  

RE: Coatings for chemical resistance

You have to determine what chemicals are present and design accordingly.  Some chemicals may require a high build epoxy, some a membrane and some just a specialised coating system.


RE: Coatings for chemical resistance

This is posted in the concrete admixture engineering section, but the question is about coatings.

RE: Coatings for chemical resistance

For chemical resistance, Xypex, would not be the first to come to mind...


RE: Coatings for chemical resistance

No Xypex really doesnt do much anyhow. I would suggest an integral admixture that is silene siloxane based instead of a coating.
