The effect was studied of the "Vinacet" emulsion on the properties of motars and concretes, its usefulness was assessed, and its principles and range of application were determined. Vinacet D5 polyvinyl acetate emulsion (contains no plasticizer) was used in the investigations (in which plasticized dibutyl phthalate was added in some cases) as well as cement motar (1 part of cement, 3 parts of sand by weight) of plastic consistency. Vinacet emulsion causes a significant increase in the liquidity of fresh mortar and the possibility of lowering the amount of batch water by 15 to 40 percent. Two hundred and fifty (250) grade concrete (with a cement content of 350 Kg per cu m, water-cement index of 0.48, and plastic consistency), portland cement (350), and natural aggregate of up to 20 mm grain size were also investigated. The resistance to the bending tensile effect was studied as well as the influence of various storage conditions on polymeric concrete resistance. The crossed brick method was employed in the adherence test. The adhesive power of the connecting motar was determined by fracturing by means of special apparatus. In the experimental floor lining of polymeric concretes, concretes of 5 to 10 percent polymer content of the cement weight were used. Conclusions based on the investigations are presented.
