Abstract:
Techniques for producing lightweight insulating-type composites with uniform polymer distributions have been developed. Three lightweight aggregates, perlite, vermiculite, and foamed glass, were evaluated and perlite was selected for continued evaluation, Two monomers, methyl methacrylate (MMA) and polyester-styrene, were used in thse studies.
