Title: Durability of Fiber Glass-Portland Cement Composites
Author(s): David S. Cahn, Craig Phillips, ori Ishai, and Samuel Aroni
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 187-189
Keywords: alkalies: bond (concrete to reinforcement): bonding:concrete durablity; concretes: corrosion; epoxy resins:glass fibers:protective coatings: reinforcing materials.
Abstract:The durability of fiber glass protected with epoxy-phenol coatings in portland cement mortar was investigated. Aging and stress corrosion tests to 2 years, indicate normal fiber qlass must be protected completely with a pinhold free coating to withstand alkali attack over lonq periods as well as a coating which will migrate into the mortar to afford good bond strength.
