Chemical Resistance 


Chemical Resistance - Chemical attack on concrete floors usually arises from the spillage of aggressive chemicals. 

Technical Information

Chemical Resistance
Chemical Resistance

The intensity of the attack depends on a number of factors, principally the composition and concentration of the aggressive agent, its pH, the permeability of the concrete and the contact time.

Examples of common substances that may come into contact with concrete floors are acids, wines, beers, milk, sugars, and mineral and vegetable oils.

Any agent that attacks concrete will eventually cause surface damage if it remains in contact with the floor for long enough. Although frequent cleaning to remove aggressive agents will reduce deterioration, repeated cycles of spillage and cleaning will cause long term surface damage.
