AbstractThe use of surface coatings to protect concrete in roads, bridges and associated structures against the damaging effects of de-icer chemicals is reviewed. The mechanism by which de-icer chemicals bring about scaling and spalling of concrete is also reviewed. In spite of the development of newer coatings, linseed oil is still considered to be both effective and economical. The performance of silicones has been conflicting and, in general, poor. Epoxy paving cements, introduced a short time ago, have given generally good results and, although more expensive than other coatings, show considerable promise.
