In this study, permeable repair materials mainly composed of silicate - based inorganic materials(SIM), which are easily available domestically, were prepared as a basic study for the development of permeable repair materials using SIM. SIM were compared and examined for their performance as repair materials by selecting a product group which has many cases of use in foreign countries. The SIM used were mainly composed of sodium, potassium and lithium silicate. Performance evaluation of SIM was performed by absorption and penetration, compression and adhesion, rapid chloride ion penetration, rapid freezing and thawing, and chemical resistance test. According to the test results, SIM showed effective performance in all areas, mainly because SIM permeates into the interior of the capillary and has a dense internal microstructure. Therefore, it can be used variously to improve the durability of concrete based on the results of this experiment.
