POLYMER CONCRETE OVERLAY TEST PROGRAM

This report describes work done on various combinations of monomers and polymer concrete mixes and identifies the mixes showing the greatest potential for use in bridge deck overlays. Presented are test results showing physical properties of various polymer concrete mixes, such as compressive strength, split tensile strength, modulus of elasticity, thermal coefficient of expansion, and shrinkage coefficient. The effects of polymer content, work time, and temperature on various properties are also discussed. The development of two polymer concrete systems with excellent membrane potential are described along with the details of bonding characteristics of several systems. Finally, a polymer concrete mix with suitable properties for deck and pavement patching is detailed.
