Hence there is dire need to expose every kind of concrete we innovate to be tested in various percentages of acid solutions so that the durability and vulnerability aspects of the type of concrete invented is thoroughly studied. Acid is a substance which has sour taste and reacts with alkaline or bases to form salts which may be or may not be soluble in water. Acids are present in rain due to pollution of atmosphere.
