Description / Abstract:

This guide provides a fundamental background needed to apply the technology of polymers in concrete to a variety of engineering problems and applications.

The guide contains four basic sections that address polymer-impregnated concrete (PIC), polymer concrete (PC), polymer portland-cement concrete (now called polymer-cement concrete [PPCC]), and safety. Each of the three categories of concrete-containing polymers is usually applied to particular types of concrete elements or specific concrete property improvements, although there are significant overlapping areas. Safety, however, is a prerequisite for all polymer usage, and is discussed collectively. The guide does not contain extensive tabulated data from specific studies, as this type of information is available in other documents and does not contribute significantly to an understanding of how the polymers should actually be used in or applied to concrete.
