Abstract : In an effort to produce resinous compounds for use in preventing passage of water through porous construction materials such as concrete, a series of crosslinking or complexing reactions were carried out to product water-insoluble materials from water-soluble materials. None of the materials produced had mechanical and chemical properties equal or superior to those of polyvinyl alcohol precipitated by sodium sulfate. (Author-PL)
