Example text

The polymer latexes that are underlined in Fig. 2 are the main ones that are in general use today in the world. 3 gives the Process Technology oflatex-Modifid Systems 25 chemical structures of the main polymer latexes. Of these polymer latexes, polyvinyl acetate latex and poly(vinylidene chloride-vinyl chloride) latex are generally not recommended as cement modifiers because of the very poor water resistance and chloride ion liberation respectively as mentioned later. Both latexes are not currently used as cement modifiers in Japan.

4), 89(5):521- Properties of Latex-Modified Systems Latex-modified mortar and concrete are made by using a composite binder of inorganic cements and organic polymer latexes, and have a network structure which consists of cement gels and microfilms of polymers. Consequently, the properties of the latex-modified mortar and concrete are markedly improved over conventional cement mortar and concrete. The properties of the fresh and hardened mortar and concrete are affected by a multiplicity of factors such as polymer type, polymer-cement ratio, watercement ratio, air content, and curing conditions.
