Abstract:

Data are presented on composition, strength, modulus of elasticity and thermal expansion for polymer concrete material systems. Resin systems included polyesters, epoxies, and vinyl esters. Fine and coarse aggregate fillers in volume fractions up to 0.85 were incorporated into the resin binders. Fiber reinforcement of various types, lengths, and contents was incorporated into several mixes. By a judicious selection of resin modifiers and filler materials a wide range of densities and strengths may be obtained. Material property data on coefficients of thermal expansion, bond strength, water absorption, and effect of elevated temperatures have been obtained.
