Polgen ® Additive    for increase concrete compressive strength

Many organic molecules called polymers are formed a chain structure by a chemical reaction called polymerization.

Polymers have a parallel and linear chain structure. The polymers are randomly arranged and made up of linked chains and after curing by polymerization, there is no softening by heating. 

 

Non-chemically active polymers have higher pressure and tensile strength than normal concrete. However, modulus of elasticity is lower, deformation is higher at tensile. Therefore, the weak tensile strength of the concrete is improved by the use of polymeric materials. In addition, the bonding agents used increase the adherence between the polymer and the cement granules and increase the strength of the composite.

The polymers that surround the surface of the cement particles provide resistance to shrinkage cracks caused by the expansion and contraction movements of the concrete.

Since the foam has a concrete cell structure, the shrinkage cracks which occur  during the drying process of the concrete deteriorate the concrete structure

The Polymers are improving the weak tensile and shrinkage strength in foam concrete cellular.

 

Uses of POLGEN in Foam Concrete

Mix in mortar water as %0,3 - %0,7 of cement weight. Foam is added after the homogeneous mixture is obtained.
