RAPID PATCHING OF CONCRETE USING POLYMER CONCRETE
One of the major problems confronting the highway industry today is the need for a rapid repair material for deteriorated concrete structures. High maintenance costs and traffic delays have created the need for a long lasting, rapid setting, concrete patching material. The use of polymer concrete (PC) as a repair material is discussed. Materials used to make polymer concrete composites are described, as is the procedure for placing polymer concrete patches. The placement of polymer concrete patches in the field by highway maintenance personnel using conventional concrete mixing equipment and techniques is also described.
