Sealers are used to enhance concrete durability through their ability to prevent moisture penetration and chloride intrusion, and, consequently, improve the freeze–thaw performance of the concrete and prevent corrosion of the steel reinforcement, respectively. This paper summarizes the results of three years of comprehensive field and laboratory investigations, undertaken at The University of Manitoba, to study the effectiveness of boiled linseed oil and mineral spirits in comparison to a… Expand
Evaluation of surface sealers for concrete hydraulic structures exposed to low temperatures
Many hydraulic structures exhibit downstream cracks and surface degradation due to porous and non air-entrained concrete cast only a few decades ago, wetting–drying and freezing–thawing cycles. TheseExpand
Identifying Damage, Predicting Expansion, and Determining the Effectiveness of Sealers on Concrete Affected by Alkali-Silica Reaction and Freeze-Thaw
Premature cracking of the barrier wall and pavement on I-49 south of Fayetteville, Arkansas due to a combination of Alkali-Silica Reaction (ASR) and freeze-thaw has led to ASR and freeze-thawExpand
Can Soy Methyl Esters Reduce Fluid Transport and Improve Durability of Concrete?
Many durability problems in concrete are caused by the transport of water or fluid containing aggressive ions. As a result, many seek to reduce the absorption and flow of fluids in concrete throughExpand
