CONCRETE-POLYMER COMPOSITES, A MATERIAL FOR USE IN CORROSIVE ENVIRONMENTS

Significant improvements in the strength and durability properties of concrete can be obtained by the formation of concrete-polymer composites. Methods for producing two materials, polymer impregnated concrete and polymer concrete, are discussed and their structural and durability properties summarized. Existing and potential applications for these materials such as for bridge decks, curbstones, pilings, pipe, and storage tanks are reviewed. (ERA citation 01:013717)
