DEVELOPMENT AND APPLICATIONS OF VARIOUS POLYMER CONCRETE ENGINEERING MATERIALS. IN: POLYMERS IN CONCRETE: THE FIRST THIRTY YEARS

Polymer concretes (PC) are a group of advanced construction materials that have been developed to meet certain needs and solve specific problems. The paper reviews some of the different PC formulations that were developed at Brookhaven National Laboratory. Three PCs are reviewed to show how different formulations fulfill different composite requirements. The first composite to be discussed was used to insulate the dike areas surrounding LNG storage tanks. The second composite, an electrically conductive material, used as a bridge deck overlay, uniformly distributes the anode current from a cathodic protection system. The third composite was a high strength, highly ductile material used to cast vaults for underground natural gas regulator stations.
