Abstract: The contribution of concrete-polymer composites, particularly polymer-modified cement concrete and mortar, to sustainable construction technology is manifold. By polymer modification of concrete, an interpenetrating network of polymer and cement hydrates is generated in which the aggregates are embedded. The synergetic action of polymers and cement concrete offers great opportunities for improvement and a wide range of new and innovative properties and applications. Durability is increased to a great extent. Renovation and restoration figure largely in the concept of sustainable construction development. Polymer-modified cement mortars have an excellent adhesion strength and durability and are therefore widely used as repair materials, enabling conservation of damaged or obsolete structures, and thus limiting mass, energy and pollutant flows.
