Editor: Mahmoud Reda Taha

Sponsored by Committee 548


This SP contains nine papers sponsored by ACI Committee 548. The extended use of polymers in concrete has grown significantly in the last two decades. This is demonstrated from the common use of epoxy to repair cracks, to the use of polymer concrete overlays to protect bridge decks. The papers provide insight into the current state of research and development for the use of polymers in concrete and new trends that will shape the frontiers of the polymer concrete industry in the near future.
