Polymer Composites in Construction

Polymer Composites are produced using polymers with the help of cement, sand or aggregates.

Polymer composite in construction

These are also known as prepolymer cement concretes. The addition of polymer to concrete is to improve the following properties:

1. Compressive Strength
2. Resistance to wear and Tear
3. Fatigue Resistance
4. Impact Resistance
5. Impermeability
6. Durability
7. Chemical Resistance

Applications and Uses of Polymer Composites


1. Precast Products such as Kerb Stone
2. Bridge Ducts
3. Manhole Covers
4. Sewers
5. Tunnel Linings
6. Pipe carrying chemicals

Advantages of Polymer Composites


1. Cost Effective
2. Light Weight and thin
3. Superior to cement concrete
