Concrete is easily affected by all kinds of erosive substances during its use. Surface treatment is a simple method to improve the surface compactness and water permeability resistance of concrete. In this paper, silicate infiltration agent, nano-SiO2 and ethyl silicate are selected as concrete surface treatment material. The results of water permeability test showed that all the three treatments can effectively improve the water resistance. Silicate infiltration agent and nano-SiO2 were the

Through the water permeability test curve, we can see that the water entered the concrete under a certain pressure, and the result showed the shape of high, middle and low edge.
