Abstract : This report provides the status of information, including research needs, on the performance of materials containing polymers used to repair portland cement concrete. The following types of repair materials were covered: sealant type materials for repairing active cracks, and polymer adhesives, polymer mortars and concretes, and polymer-modified mortars and concretes for repairing spalls and dormant cracks and for placing overlays. This report is considered a first step in the process of developing performance tests and criteria and is intended to serve as a guide in selecting performance requirements, degradation factors, properties related to performance, and relevant existing test methods and their parameters. Keywords: Overlays, Repair materials, Sealants, Spalls, Test methods.
