Abstract:
Almost every structure where concrete or steel are used is vulnerable to the corrosive effects of chemical and environmental attack, as well as me-chanical abuse due to stress and vehicular traffic. Severe deterioration of such structures can result in the commercial, industrial and transportation areas. Epoxy resin based polymer products are used for the rehabilitation, repair and protection of both existing or newly constructed structures.
