The Properties of an Epoxy Mortar and its use for Structural Joints
The formulation of an epoxy mortar is related to existing knowledge of the design of resin mortar mixes. The results are given of several series of tests on this mortar and on joints made with it. These show that it is suitable for use in structural joints in precast concrete that transmit combined shear and compression, and that its flexibility and creep are little greater than those of concrete, and an order of magnitude less than those of the epoxy resins previously tested.
