Keeping concrete dry is one way of reducing damage to concrete and this can be achieved by using one of Weber's coatings or sealers.
BS EN 1504-9:2006
BS EN 1504 Principle 2 is concerned with moisture control by adjusting and maintaining the moisture content in the concrete within a specified range of values.
Moisture control is used to control adverse reactions (such as alkali-silica reaction or sulphate attack) by allowing concrete to dry as well as preventing moisture build-up.
BS EN 1504-2: Surface protection systems for concrete
Methods of protection based upon the BS EN 1504 Principle 2 is the use of the following:
- 2.1 Hydrophobic impregnation.
- 2.2 Surface coating.
- 2.3 Sheltering and overcladding.
- 2.4 Electrochemical treatment.
