Developments in the science and technology of polymer-impregnated concretes (PIC's), up to December 1975, are covered in this review. PIC's are important members of the group of concrete-polymer systems. PIC has been defined as 'a precast portland cement concrete impregnated with a monomer system that is subsequently polymerized in situ'. The term PIC is applicable to precast concretes and mortars which are fully-impregnated and those which are partially-impregnated to a finite depth. Sulfur-impregnated concretes are also included in this review, but other concrete-polymer systems, such as polymer-concrete and polymer-concrete, are not.
