Title New strategies for the development of preventive surface protection measures
Original title Neue Strategien für die Entwicklung präventiver Oberflächeschutzmassnahmen [in German]

Abstract Following a historical review of protective coatings in construction from ancient times until today, new systems, based on nanotechnology, which create a hydrophobic barrier on concrete are presented. Such coatings, mainly based on silanes, prevent pollutants from penetrating the concrete and attacking its surface.
