Tag: Polymer Concrete Polymer Concretes

Plastics with long-chain molecules, called polymers, are used in several ways to enhance concrete properties: replacement of portland cement, incorporation in a mix as an admixture, and impregnating hardened concrete. Polymer concretes, such as methyl methacrylate and unsaturated polyester, in which a polymer replaces portland cement may have more than double the strength and modulus of elasticity of portland-cement concrete. Creep is less and
