Title: Development and Applications of Various Polymer Concrete Engineering Materials
Author(s): J. J. Fontana
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 23-38
Keywords: electrically conductive polymer concrete; insulating polymer concrete; precast polymer concrete
Abstract:A wide variety of advanced constmction materials have been developed to meet certain needs and solve specific problems. These materials have all come under the umbrella title of "Polymer Concrete"(PC). Using different types of resins and fillers, composites can be formulated having totally different physical properties. This paper will review several different PC formulations that were developed at Brookbaven National Laboratory (BNL) and installed at operating facilities by construction contractors. The three materials selected for this review are: A) Insulating Polymer Concrete (IPC) for dike insulation at Liquified Natural Gas (LNG) facilities; B) Electrically Conductive Polymer Concrete Overlays used in conjunction with a cathodic protection system on a deteriorated bridge deck and C) Precast PC vaults for natural gas regulator stations.
