Experimental Research on Properties of Polymer Concrete Used for Repairing Portland Cement Concrete Pavement of Airport

Pham Huy KHANG, Nguyen Trong HIEP

Abstract


Polymer concrete (PC) is a popular construction material used for repair, thin over-lays for floors and bridge decks, and other specialized fields such as precast components, machine construction. The material has many desirable properties such as fast curing, high compressive and flexural strength, high bonding to substrate, resistance to chemical agents. This study focuses on investigation properties of polymer concrete applying in repairing works of Portland cement concrete (PCC) pavement of airport by experiments. The research results in both laboratory and field tests showed that the material has advanced properties and meet very well the requirements from practice. This result has been proposed to apply polymer concrete for treatment of surface distresses of Portland cement concrete pavement of airports in Vietnam.
