The paper presents a description of acrylic-based polymers used in civil engineering for concrete protection. Some information on chemistry and properties of the acrylic coatings is included together with current trends in coating technology. Moreover, the paper shows test results, that is barrier properties and SEM observations of a commercial elastic acrylic-based polymer subject to artificial weathering for 1000h. The studies showed that the weathering did not change carbon dioxide permeability of the tested coating and its influence on water vapour permeability of the material was also very small. The test results show that an assessment of coating performance based only on barrier properties is not enough.
