Investigate The Engineering Properties of Epoxy-Modified Mortars As Self-Healing Materials


The aim of this study as mentioned above is to investigate the properties of Mortars to develop a self-healing polymeric-cementitious material using polymeric admixture, epoxy resin (Diglycidyl Ether of Bisphenol A Type). This study investigates the engineering properties of epoxy-modified mortars as self-healing materials. In this research an epoxy resin (diglycidyl ether of bisphenol A) without any hardener is used as polymeric admixture to prepare polymeric-cementitious materials and their self-healing function is evaluated. Epoxy-modified mortars are prepared with various polymer-cement ratios, subjected to initial wet/dry curing plus long term dry curing and tested for strength properties. The fundamental properties such as workability, influence of curing, strength development and water absorption are investigated. The results show that 10% of polymer - cement and wet dry curing was optimum to modify the strength properties of mortar.

Key Words
