Title: Waterproofing Cement Mortars and Concretes-The Liquid Method
Author(s): G.G. Fry
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 255-256
Abstract:I have but a few words to say. I hope in time my waterproofing will speak more eloquently for me than I speak earnestly for it. I speak earnestly because I believe a waterproofing to be a necessary and useful addition to that most desirable building material-concrete. Probably no feature in the construction of office buildings, factories, apartment houses, bridges, residences, etc., has received more attention recently than the employment of concrete as a building material. The use of this material is becoming more general every day and new possibilites are opening up for it. New inventions and new materials are every day being put in the market for the advancement of concrete as a building material and yet the possibilites have not even been approximated.
