Title: Investigation on Portland Cement Pastes and Mortars Modified by the Addition of Epoxy
Author(s): Sandor Popvics and Ferenc Tamas
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 357-366
Keywords: accelerating agents; cement paste; compressive strength; epoxy resins; hydration; mortars (material); polymerization; tensile strength; workability
Abstract:Laboratory experiments are reported with the intention to show the effects of epoxy modification of portland cement mortars in the presence or absence of accelerating and/or plastifying admixtures. . .The test results show considerable improvements in the workability of the epoxy-modified mortars, and strength increases, when it accelerating admixture was also used, up to 100 to 120%. It appears from the results of the silylation that these strength increases were caused mostly by physical factors.
