Abstract:
By applying the newly developed techniques of polymer impregnated concrete (PIC) in conjunction with existing epoxy repair technology, severely deteriorated, low quality concrete can be restored to an adequate structural material. The problem of handling techniques and safety of PIC used in a closed building environment are discussed along with costs of commercial use.
