Water Repellent Coatings

Fluid-applied waterproofing products are installed on concrete and other porous materials to prevent moisture from passing through into the building. Many of these products, such as hot-applied rubberized asphalt mixes, are used on concrete below grade, but some are intended only for use above grade. Products labeled as "damp proofing" provide little to no resistance to hydrostatic pressure, while "waterproofing" products demonstrate their moisture performance according to ASTM D5385 (Standard Test Method for Hydrostatic Pressure Resistance of Waterproofing Membranes).

Waterproofing Concretes
by Glenn Summers

I am curious as to why I don't see more information concerning sustainability of concrete structures when they are waterproofed as they are placed. A stabilized concrete matrix that reduces moisture and oxygen content to inhibit corrosion of steel as well as providing a maintenance free surface seems as though it would belong here?

Once the process has been achieved in the factory is there a constant off gass with this process or is most of the chemicals of gassed in the factory. I am looking at a high weather door coated using the double apck process.
