Abstract
Concrete Coatings are becoming more popular to protect concrete surfaces for infrastructures. The coating improves the durability of concrete structures. Inorganic concrete coatings are better than organic coatings because they allow the release of vapor pressure. The results presented in this thesis deals with the behavior of the inorganic matrices which are based on silicates. The coating is compatible with concrete, brick and wooden surfaces.
The objective of the research presented in this thesis is to evaluate the matrices for workability, ease of application and self cleaning properties. Cracking characteristics were also evaluated using high magnification. The self cleaning properties of the coating matrices were studied using Rohdamine B dye to detect the degradation rate of the organic chemicals that represent the organic pollutants in the atmosphere.
Advanced technology such as X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy and Atomic force microscope was used to measure the curing period and its effect on the matrices self cleaning properties. The degradation of the organic chemicals represents a breakthrough in the development of the inorganic matrices because they can be used in manyapplications. Matrix combination that provides workable mix and minimum nano-level cracking are recommended.
