HANDBOOK OF POLYMER-MODIFIED CONCRETE AND MORTARS: PROPERTIES AND PROCESS TECHNOLOGY

Polymer-modified or polymer cement mortar (PCM) and concrete (PCC) are materials that deal with concrete-polymer composites. They are made by partially replacing the cement hydrate binders of conventional cement mortar or concrete with polymers, such as polymeric admixtures or cement modifiers, and by strengthening the binders with the polymers. The polymeric admixtures or cement modifiers include latexes, emulsified polymers, redispersible polymer powders, water-soluble polymers, liquid resins, and monomers. The composite concrete and mortars are currently used as popular construction materials. This book brings together the current knowledge and information of PCMs and PCCs and discusses or reviews the following items in detail: principles of polymer modification for cement composites, process technology of PCMs and PCCs, properties of PCMs and PCCs, applications of PCMs and PCCs, and special polymer-modified systems such as MDF cements, antiwashout underwater concretes, polymer-ferrocements, and artificial woods. An index and chapter references are included.
