The article discusses the development of epoxy resins from the viewpoint of engineers, architects and contractors. By the use of curing agents and admixtures, a range of properties can be obtained to form resins capable of bonding concrete. The physical properties of epoxy resin mortars are compared with those of portland cement concrete. Epoxy resin based materials used in the construction industry are divided into four categories - surface coatings, mortars, grouts and adhesives. The applications of these materials are discussed and recommended mixing and placing procedures are detailed. A bibliography gives selected references which provide detailed information on standard specifications. (TRRL)
