Title: Guide for Use of Epoxy Compounds with Concrete
Author(s): ACI Committee 403
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 1121-1142
Abstract:Describes proper procedures for the use of epoxy resin compounds for skid-resistant overlays, waterproofing, patching, crack and joint sealing, bonding new concrete or hardened concrete to old concrete, grouting, coatings to prevent chemical attack and other uses. Methods of surface preparation of both concrete and steel, removing contamination prior to applying epoxy compounds, and for applying the epoxy resin compound are described. A test for appraising the soundness of the concrete surface and adhesion to it is suggested. Since epoxy compounds are often toxic, safe handling practice is extensively discussed.
