Polymer Modified Cement

Edward M. Petrie – Sep 17, 2012

This editorial provides an introduction into the use of polymer latex as an additive in cement and concrete mixtures. Such polymer modification of cement and concrete noticeably improves application and performance characteristics. Polymers have been used as additives in cement mortars and concrete since the 1920s when natural rubber latex was added to road paving materials. Since then, there has been considerable development of polymer modification for cement and concrete. Commercial products, called cement admixtures, are used in many applications in the construction industry from sea walls to roads.
