LONG-TERM DURABILITY STUDIES OF ACRYLIC POLYMER MODIFIED CEMENT. IN: POLYMERS IN CEMENT: THE FIRST THIRTY YEARS

The excellent UV durability and water resistance properties of acrylic polymers are widely recognized. Those properties translate into excellent long term outdoor durability and wet adhesion durability in the modified concrete when acrylic polymers are used as modifiers in Portland cement formulations. The paper describes a number of laboratory prepared series of acrylic polymer modified Portland cement formulations that have been placed in outdoor exposure and tested periodically for the durability of various properties. Acrylic polymers have been found to be the ideal cement modifiers with respect to outdoor durability and wet adhesion durability.
