AbstractOf the various preservative treatment compositions tried on experimental mild steel rods held in the open and required for use in re-enforcement, a mixture of 2 parts of cement +1 part of paint (Paint P.F.U. Priming G.S. Brushing Red Oxide of Iron Zinc Chromate, IHA-0541) has been found satisfactory, as revealed from exposure trials carried out for 4 months, during which the treatment has withstood the severe rains and humid conditions.
