Abstract:
Styrene-butadiene latex modified concrete system is an effective technique for repair and rehabilitation of parking garage decks. The system appears to retard corrosion of the reinforcing steel and has many benefits, including ease of placement and workability, superior flexural and bonding strength, and deicer scaling resistance. Styrene-butadiene latex modified concrete can be applied in parking structures during the winter months with few problems.
