Polymer concrete is a quick setting, high strength, durable patching material used to repair reinforced portland cement concrete. Cure times of approximately one hour can be obtained from 20 deg F to 130 deg F. The complete patching procedure is discussed including the preparation of the patch, calculation of the amount of materials required, and the mixing and placing of the polymer concrete. Suppliers of the chemicals used are listed. Proper storage, disposal, and safety procedures are also outlined. The cost of polymer concrete is also calculated for the methyl methacrylate (MMA) system used in this study. A materials cost (early 1980) of about $16 per cubic foot or $430 per cubic yard is expected. (FHWA)
