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. The guide emphasizes the factors that should be considered when selecting a structural adhesive, including characteristics during installation and in service. The benefits and limitations of adhesive bonding are discussed for each application.
