Gamma radiation

Shimel and Sor Testing Laboratories, Inc., Cedar Grove, NJ.
Exposure of Penetron Treated Concrete to Gamma Radiation
Result: visual comparison, photographs and the adhesion test performed on the Penetron coating both before and after exposure to 5.76 x 104 of gamma radiation do not reveal any perceptible ill effects or damages. The defects as listed under USA Standard No. Rads N6.9-1967 “Protective Coatings (Paints) for the Nuclear Industry” were evaluated. No fine line cracking (ASTM D661-44), checking (ASTM D660-44), alligatoring, mud cracking (ASTM D661-44), blistering (ASTM D714-56), flaking (ASTM D772-47), discoloration, delamination and chalking (ASTM D659-44) were observed. The categories embrittlement, bubbling, blistering (ASTM D714-56), orange peeling, catalyst migration are not applicable because the Penetron material, according to the technical literature does not act strictly as a surface covering, but rather a treatment which is absorbed into the voids and capillaries of the concrete, later filling these areas with crystalline structures.
