Abstract:
Polymer cement concretes prepared by substituting at least 20 percent of expoxy resin for cement into ordinary Portland cement concrete mixes showed increased compressive strengths. The addition of flyash to the epoxy cement mixes increased the compressive strength further. Preliminary tests indicated that the presence of the epoxy resin does not inhibit the hydration of the Portland cement.
