POLYMER-IMPREGNATED FIBER-REINFORCED MORTARS

MORTAR BARS REINFORCED BY CHOPPED STEEL WIRE AND FIBER GALSS WERE IMPREGNATED WITH METHYLMETHACRYLATE WHICH WAS THEN POLYMERIZED WITH BENZOYL PEROXIDE AT 75 F. MONOMER LOADING WAS 10 WT% FIBROUS REINFORCEMENT 2 VOL%. TENSILE, COMPRESSIVE, AND FLEXURAL STRENGTHS WERE MEASURED FOR CONTROL SPECIMENS (WITHOUT REINFORCEMENT AND IMPREGNATION) REINFORCED SPECIMENS, IMPREGNATED SPECIMENS, AND IMPREGNATED AND REINFORCED SPECIMENS. FLEXURAL STRENGTH WAS INCREASED BY POLYMER IMPREGNATION (50% OF CONTROL) AND BY FIBER REINFORCEMENT (45% OF CONTROL); THE GREATEST INCREASE WAS OBTAINED WITH BOTH POLYMER AND STEEL FIBERS (2820% OF CONTROL). THIS INCREASE IS PROBABLY CAUSED BY ENHANCED FIBERPASTE BONDING WITH POLYMER IMPREGNATION. /AUTHOR/
