The influence of lithium water glass on the durability of concrete
Keywords:concrete, hydrophobic impregnation, water absorption, durability
The aim of the research is to verify the effect of lithium water glass on the durability and reduction of concrete absorption. For this purpose, the absorption test was made and the influence of the impregnation agent on durability when the test specimens are exposed to cyclic freezing and thawing was verified. Finally, the permeability of the test specimens was measured before and after impregnation. On the basis of the tests carried out, the effect of the impregnation agent was determined by comparing impregnated test specimens with reference specimens.
