PRECAST USE OF POLYMER CONCRETE USING UNSATURATED POLYESTER RESIN BASED ON RECYCLED PET WASTE

The strength properties and behaviour of unreinforced and reinforced polymer concrete (PC) using an unsaturated polyester resin based on recycled polyethylene terephthalate (PET) plastic waste are reported. The results obtained show that resins based on recycled PET can be used to produce good quality PC for precast applications such as utility components, transportation components, machine bases and building components. The use of recycled PET in PC helps in reducing the cost of the material, solving some of the solid waste problems posed by plastics and saving energy. (A)
