Abstract:
Measurements were made of the penetration of kerosene under a I2 ft pressure head into discs of concrete which had received various treatments or coatings. The tests were classified into seven groups as follows: (I) reference concrete, (2) integral admixtures, (3) sodium silicate and magnesium fluosili-cate treatments, (4) plaster coats, plain and with admixtures, (5) magnesium oxychloride type coatings, (6) linseed oil and spar varnish coatings, and (7) synthetic plastic and latex coatings. Comparisons of the relative rates of penetration of kerosene into the specimens of each group are given, together with a discussion of various other properties of each group.
