Download Handbook of Coatings for Concrete – R. Bassi, S. K. Roy pdf
In the field of construction, the maintenance and repair of concrete structures has become a core activity and the protection of concrete is thus of primary concern. Coatings for concrete should protect against corrosion of the reinforcement and against surface attack. This book addresses the whole subject in a practical way looking at the chemistry, applications and use of the major categories of coatings.
