The Behaviour of Polymer Materials in Concrete Repair, and Factors Influenceing Selection

Polymer materials are commonly used in the repair of concrete structures. These polymer materials include the epoxy resins, producing polymer concrete (PC), and the acrylic/SBR modifiers, producing polymer cement concrete (PCC). In addition, other polymers are used, such as polyesters, and some non-polymer materials, such as special cements and additives. This paper concentrates on the behaviour of the epoxy resins and the acrylic/SBR modifiers, but the principles discussed apply equally to other materials. D.R. Plum
