POLYMER AND FIBRE REINFORCEMENT OF CONCRETE VOLUME 2 (APPENDICES)

POLYMER-OCH FIBERFOERSTAERKNING AV BETONG

This project concentrated on fibre reinforcement technology, which was considered to have the greatest development possibilities. Fibre reinforcement mainly provides concrete material with increased tensile strength, increased deformation capacity and improved crack-distribution capacity. Steel glass, plastic and cellulose constitute the materials used for the fibre themselves. These fibres are used cut, or continuously in the form of meshes and fabrics. Fibre concrete is manufactured in traditional mixtures or by means of spraying, and certain industrial processes, similar to the manufacture of asbestos cement, are being developed. The products manufactured of fibre concrete are frequently thin; pavements, rock reinforcement and sheet products in various forms constitute important applications. The study of polymer impregnation of concrete has been oriented towards a study of the effects of the moisture state on the impregnation and polymerization processes as a basis for an attempt to draw up a practically usable process for surface impregnation. Attempts have been made to carry out polymerization through the use of curing agents, and certain studies have been devoted to establishing where the polymer which is formed, occurs in the concrete structure. A combination of polymer impregnation and fibre reinforcement has also been studied. The mixing of polymers into fresh concrete (polymer-cement concrete) has been studied only to a limited extent, since similar studies have been carried out elsewhere in Sweden. (TRRL)
