POLYMER PAVEMENT CONCRETE FOR ARIZONA. STUDY I

The report consists of three parts. In part I a review of literature is presented concerning the combinations of polymers and concrete. The most important findings were that (a) as of 1973, reported investigations concerning the incorporation of polymerizable product into fresh concrete have been confined to limited and smallscale feasibility studies; and (b) disappointing results have precluded further investigations. Part II presents four series of our own exploratory experiments as follows: Experiments with four monomer systems; PCC experiments with monomer + catalyst systems; Experiments with a polyvinyl acetate emulsion; and Concrete experiments with coated aggregates. In Part III the addition of urea-formaldehyde prepolymers to standard Ottawa-sand mortars was investigated.
