Abstract: A literature search showed that several materials have been proposed for use as coatings for concrete. Some of these coatings may be suitable as effective waterproof systems for use on concrete bridge decks. Systems that appear to be most effective as permanent coatings for concrete are primarily of the thermosetting type and include alkyd resins, epoxy-ester, silicone-alkyd, neoprenes, urethanes, polyesters, and epoxy resins. In all of these systems, adhesion of the system to the concrete is of paramount importance, and often adhesion is dependent on the temperature to which the structure is subjected. Copies of pertinent available references are included--either the entire reference or an abstract.
