Abstract : The objectives of this research were to achieve a basic improvement in the water compatibility of acrylic materials and to utilize lower cost acrylic materials, while maintaining the desirable characteristics of the DOMA system: rapid strength development over a full environmental range, high strength and toughness, low viscosity, minimum flammability and toxicity hazards, long shelf life, and ease of handling. The resultant HEMA resin yielded about 100-percent wet strength improvement with cost lowered to approximately $1.13 per pound from $2.17 per pound for DOMA. These improvements led to inclusion of HEMA in the Advanced Bomb Damage Repair Systems subtask of the Rapid Runway Repair Program. (Author)
