AbstractThe effect of impregnation on long-term durability has been investigated by exposing 1.3-mm thick specimens of sulphur- impregnated, autoclaved, portland cement-silica mixtures, room-temperature-cured pastes and porous glass to various liquids including water. All impregnated bodies were permeable to vapours, and matrices with specific surface areas in excess of 20 m[2]/g and impregnated with sulphur were subject to high internally-generated local stresses when exposed to water and other vapours, leading to possible failure.
