Effect of curing regime on polymer-cement concrete properties

Piotr Paweł Woyciechowski


The general standards and guidelines recommendations for PCC suggest alternating conditions of curing: starting with wet conditions for effective hydration of Portland cement followed by air-dry conditions for polymer hardening. The often accepted curing regime of PCC covers 5 days of wet curing and then the air-dry curing but it is not the optimum one. The aim of the investigation was to find the best scenario for PCC with two types of polymer modifiers: two-component epoxy resin and water dispersion of polyacrylates. The following exploitation properties were accepted as the criteria of evaluation of PCC curing effectiveness: compressive strength, tensile splitting strength, surface tensile strength (by pull-off method), wear resistance, water penetration under pressure and resistance to carbonation. The optimum time of PCC wet curing is possibly between 7 and 14 days, however, it have to be verified experimentally for specific PCC composition.
