This report addresses concrete made with organic polymers combined with hydraulic cement and discusses the polymer systems used to produce polymer-modified concrete, including their composition and physical properties. It explains the principle of polymer modification and reviews the factors involved in selecting appropriate polymer systems. The report also discusses mixture proportioning and construction techniques for different polymer systems and summarizes the properties of fresh and hardened polymer-modified concrete and common applications.

Keywords: abrasion; acrylic resins; admixtures; bridge deck; construction; corrosion; curing; durability; epoxy resins; latex; mixture proportioning; mortar; pavements (concrete); plastic; polymer; polymer-cement concrete; repair; resin;

resistance to chemical attack; resistance to freezing and thawing; test.
