Title: PMM for Surface Treatment of Concrete with the Utilization of By-Products
Author(s): Rostislav Drochytka and Nikol Zizkova
Appears on pages(s): 49-55
Keywords: polymer-modified mortar; by-products; external thermal insulation composite systems; adhesiveness
Abstract:The disadvantage of PMM’s (Polymer-Modified Mortars) that are currently on the market is the utilization of expensive polymer additives and also the cost of the other components. One of the possibilities how to decrease this price is the effective utilization of waste materials which are very inexpensive in spite of their good properties. The combinations of different degree in polymer adhesiveness and waste secondary raw materials – fly ash – are experimentally verified in the paper. The use of fly ash in adhesive materials for ceramic tiles is limited by unsatisfactory initial adhesiveness to sintered ceramic sherd as a result of a running pozzolanic reaction that lowers the efficiency of polymer additives. On the other hand, the use of adhesive and backfill coating materials for gluing ETICS board insulation materials has brought very good results.
