Reports relative values of various types of surface coatings in preventing scaling of young concrete (12 x I2 x 2 1/2-in. test slabs) when calcium and sodium chlorides were used for ice removal. Of the surface coatings tried, only two, linseed oil and soy were of much value. The best surface coating consisted of boiled linseed oil thinned by an equal volume of turpentine, applied at the rate of about 50 sq yd per gal., followed after 24 hr by the application of straight boiled linseed oil at the rate of about 70 sq yd per gal.
