Literature suggests a number of fomulations as surface coatings for concrete but the performance data on various compositions is lacking. There are no standard acceptance tests as regards concrete surface. Since the surface coating over concrete is to perform under dynamic condition, it should have sufficient flexibility, adhesion coupled with impermeability and chemical resistance. Three types of acceptance tests were carried out.
