Concrete Specialised Applications & Repair Work
Concrete repair includes among others anti-carbonation coatings and decorative elastomeric coatings, which help prolong the life of concrete structures. To protect concrete from damaging, coatings have been designed. Epoxy coatings may only be applied to interior surfaces, though, as they would otherwise trap moisture in the concrete. Self-healing concrete has also been developed, which lasts longer than traditional concrete. Concrete is widely used in construction, for mass concrete structures such as gravity dams, large breakwaters and bridges and tunnels.
