Polymer Concrete

Definition: concrete in which an organic polymer serves as the binder.- ACI Concrete Terminology


Polymer concrete is a composite material in which the aggregate is bound together in a matrix with a polymer binder. The composites do not contain a hydrated cement phase, although portland cement can be used as an aggregate or filler. Polymer concrete composites possess a unique combination of properties dependent on the formulation. These include rapid curing at ambient temperatures from –18 to +40°C (0 to 104°F); high tensile, flexural, and compressive strengths; good adhesion to most surfaces; good long-term durability with respect to cycles of freezing and thawing; low permeability to water and aggressive solutions; good chemical resistance; and light weight.
