This guide is not intended to and does not supersede the requirements specified or identified by the protection system manufacturer or as required by applicable ordinances or regulations. However, in situations where the best practices identified in this guide differ from the requirements of the protection system manufacturer, the specifier or installer should consider discussing these differences with the owner, the protection system manufacturer, or both, before the system is installed.
This guide is intended for bonded or penetrating surfaceapplied concrete protection systems, such as coatings, linings, and sealers. While information contained herein may be applicable to other concrete protection systems, it is not specifically intended for other concrete protections systems, such as cathodic protection systems, concrete overlays, or integral admixtures. In addition, some sections of this guide may not be applicable to concrete protective systems applied in extreme environments, such as in submerged conditions or at extreme temperatures.
