Abstract:
3M CP&R has emerged as a frog leaping technology that stepped up from the Methyl Methacrylate (MMA) in Europe 50 years ago. The MMA was metabolised with a dramatic change 20 years later in the industry to the High Molecular Weight Methacrylate (HMWM). However these technologies, particularly MMA, have suffered limitation of high level of toxicity, flammability and health risks. 3M has modified HMWM to an Advanced Modified High Molecular Weight product (hmw), creating a patented, revolutionary, lower risks protector and restorer technology with high strength near that of concrete (ASTM D 638) and remarkable Low Modulus flexibility. This paper recollects the evolution of this concrete protector and restorer technology.
