Abstract
Fluoroalkyl-containing silica nanoparticles were prepared and characterized by a combination of IR and TEM analysis. The obtained silica nanoparticles with an average diameter 40 nm were coated onto concrete. Surface properties of the coated concrete were characterized by water contact angle (WCA) and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS). The fluoroalkyl groups migrated preferentially towards air-film interface to generate a hydrophobic surface with a WCA of 140.3° and the ratio of absorbing water was 5.6%. These results demonstrated that the fluoroalkyl-containing nanomaterials could be used as water-repellent surface-treating agent for concrete and had excellent waterproofing performance.
