Abstract:This guide provides the engineer, contractor, and architect with a description of the various types of polymer adhesives (epoxy, polyster, acrylic, polyurethane, polysulfide, silicone, vinyl acetate, and styrene butadiene) most frequently used for adhesive bonding of fresh concrete to cured concrete, repair of cracks in concrete, bonding concrete to other materials, and adhesive grouting of bolts and other inserts into concrete.
