Laboratory and field evaluation of polymeric cavitation erosion-resistant materials on concrete
Husbands, Tony B.; Pepper, Leonard.
Technical reportAbstract: Fifteen polymeric coatings for protecting concrete against cavitation erosion were evaluated. Eight of these materials were found to be cavitation erosion resistant. Five of these eight materials were polyurethane sheet materials; the other three were a liquid-applied polyurethane, liquid-applied neoprene.
