Properties of Plain and Latex Modified Portland Cement Pastes and Concretes with and without Superplasticizer

Polymer latexes are known to affect the physical, mechanical and durability properties of Portland cement paste, mortar and concrete. The magnitude of this effect is dependent on the type of latex and the latex concentration in the mixture. This paper focuses on assessing the influence of methacrylic acid ester-styrene copolymer on the strength and durability characteristics of Portland cement pastes with and without superplasticizer. Also, statistical analysis was used as a means of studying the stress-strain behavior of natural rubber latex modified Portland cement concretes containing superplasticizer.
