Latex Mixes for Concrete Fixes
Division:Engineering & Computing Sciences
Region:Avon Maitland-Huron Perth
City:Dashwood, ON, Zurich, ON
School:St. Boniface Catholic School
Abstract:Because the most effective product currently available for repairing cracks in concrete is latex cement, we hypothesized we could create an equally strong and less costly alternative by mixing leftover latex paint with cement. Our results show that latex paint increases the compression strength of concrete in a concentration-dependent manner.
