Abstract

Polymer Modified Concrete (P.M.C.) has been discovered to be more potent than conventional cement because of its excellent strength and raised perseverance, so to enhance the performance, certain polymers are blended in with concrete. The impact of Styrene Butadiene Rubber (S.B.R.) over the compressive strengths, tensile strengths, and carbonation of cement has been examined in this investigation, and the ideal polymer content for concrete has additionally been resolved. This examination was attempted to decide the impacts of polymer expansion on compressive and tensile strengths utilizing concrete at nearby ambient temperature with a consistent water-cement proportion blend design. The mixes were prepared with a 0 %, 5 %, 10 %, 15 % and 20 % cement-latex ratio of Styrene-Butadiene Rubber. The fresh concrete slump test was performed while the compressive and tensile strengths were analyzed at various ages. S.B.R. latex has been appeared to have an unfavorable effect at an early age, even though applying S.B.R. latex to concrete at 28 days brings about improved compressive and tensile strength. However, the dosage of S.B.R. latex for mixtures rich in cement needs to be optimized in order to preserve the desired concrete workability.
