Abstract:
Techniques for producing polymer-impregnated concrete (PIC) are evaluated and a processing cycle recommended. A study of concrete mix variation indicates that this parameter has only a small effect on the final strength of the composite. The impregnation of high-pressure steam-cured concrete produces PIC with strengths greater than those obtained from fog-cured material.
