Epoxide Resin Concrete - a Practical Application in Superconducting Turbogenerators

A concrete with epoxide resin as the sole binder having a high compressive strength (150 MN/m2) and stiffness (40 GN/m2 at 70 °C) has been produced by a technique involving vacuum impregnation of a prepacked mould. Tests demonstrate satisfactory creep and fatigue performance. while vacuum impregnated epoxide resin concrete has been developed for the stator structure of superconducting turbogenerators, it is likely to be used in other applications, as it also has resistance to aggressive environments, impervious nature, low shrinkage, and electrical resistance.
