REPAIR AND MAINTENANCE OF CONCRETE BRIDGES WITH PARTICULAR REFERENCE TO THE USE OF EPOXIES

Epoxy materials have been available commercially for some 20 years and are being increasingly used in the repair of concrete bridges. In this paper (paper 6), a brief account is given of the manufacture of commercial epoxies and their major properties are described. Some details are given of the effect on mechanical properties of using various additives with the hardener. A number of bridge repair jobs by the main roads department, w.a., are described in which extensive use has been made of epoxies (a). (TRRL)
