Abstract:

The tests reported herein are a part of an investigation to evaluate membrane forming compounds that can be used for curing concrete surfaces that may there-after serve as a base for paint. This supplemental phase was conducted to evaluate one curing compound with four paints. One white pigmented resin-wax based curing compound was tested with four selected paints a an exterior polyvinyl-acetate amulsion paint, b an exterior and interior styrene-butadiene-acrylate paint, c an interior paint, first coat latex, second coat alkyd, and d an interior latex paint. Small concrete panels were molded and coated with the curing compound, then half were painted at one-week age and companion panels were painted at two-months age. Control panels were prepared for comparative purpose by painting directly over the panels after they were cured and dried.
