Abstract: This paper reports the results of a study conducted to evaluate the
performance of ten concrete coatings, representative of five
generic types, under varying exposure conditions. The
performance of selected coatings was assessed on laboratory
specimens by testing their adhesion to concrete, crack-bridging
ability, chloride permeability and resistance to moisture and
thermal variations. The data indicate that the overall performance
of epoxy resin and polyurethane coatings was better than that of
other generic types of coatings depending on chemical
formulations. Further, a variation in the performance of coatings of
similar generic type was noted. The selected coating needs to be
tested under conditions similar to the exposure environment.
Guidelines for the selection of concrete coatings appropriate for
the service conditions are presented along with the performance
