Abstract:
Coatings that may serve as gasoline-resistant linings for concrete storage tanks are tested by apply- ing them to small concrete containers and sealing the latter with plate glass covers drilled with small holes convenient for stoppering. Containers are filled with aviation gasoline and stored under constant temperature and humiditv conditions. Periodic weighings give percolation losses and establish the degree of impermeability in a short period. Durability of coatings in long-time contact with gasoline is in-dicated by constancy of percolation rates.
