A STUDY ON IMPROVEMENT OF THE PROPERTIES OF CEMENT MORTAR BY ADMIXING POLYMER EMULSION AND SYNTHETIC FIBERS

EXPERIMENTS ARE DESCRIBED IN WHICH BOTH POLYMER EMULSION AND SYNTHETIC FIBERS ARE MIXED WITH CEMENT MORTAR IN ORDER TO IMPROVE THE RESISTANCE TO BRITTLENESS OF HARDENED CEMENT MATERIALS AND TO STUDY THE MOLECULAR STRUCTURE OF THE POLYMER-FIBER-CEMENT SYSTEM. RESULTS ARE PRESENTED WHICH SHOW THE RELATION BETWEEN FLOW, FLEXURAL STRENGTH, COMPRESSIVE STRENGTH, TENSILE STRENGTH, IMPACT STRENGTH, YOUNG'S MODULUS, ELONGATION AND DRYING SHRINKAGE, AND VARIOUS POLYMER CEMENT AND FIBER-CEMENT RATIOS. IT IS CONCLUDED THAT THE STRENGTH CHARACTERISTICS OF THE POLYMER-FIBER-CEMENT SYSTEM ARE MUCH IMPROVED BY SIMULTANEOUS MIXING OF FIBERS AND POLYMER EMULSION WITH CEMENT. /TRRL/
