  • Abstract:
    The results of a study undertaken to evaluate premixed polymer concrete overlays (PMPCO) over a 3-year period are presented. The PMPCO evaluated were constructed with polyester amide para resin and silica sand 1;. polyester styrene resin 1 and silica sand 2; polyester styrene resin 2, basalt aggregate and coke breeze (for conductivity); polyester styrene resin 2, silica sand 3 and coke breeze; and vinyl ester styrene resin, silica sand 2, and coke breeze. The mixing of the ingredients was done with either portable concrete mixers, mortar mixers, or a continuous batching mobile concrete mixer. The overlays were struck off and consolidated with a vibrating screed or a slip form paver. The report indicates that a nonconductive PMPCO with high bond strength, low permeability, and high skid resistance can be successfully installed by a contractor and opened to traffic after only three hours of curing. The report indicates that a conductive PMPCO with high bond strength and skid resistance can be successfully installed as a secondary anode for a cathodic protection system. Also, it is shown that the special provision for a PMPCO should require the installation of test patches or test sections of overlay prior to placing the final overlay to assure that the surface preparation is adequate and the mixing, installation equipment, procedures, and materials will provide a satisfactory overlay.
