T-17 Methyl Methacrylate Polymer Concrete
Transpo® T-17 Methyl Methacrylate (MMA) Polymer Concrete Patching Material is designed for use on new construction and rehabilitation of bridge decks, expansion joints, bearing pads, and other concrete structures and is a 100% reactive, pre-packaged, two component solvent-free material system.
Testing has shown T-17 Polymer Concrete can be considered an alternative to UHPC (Ultra High Performance Concrete)
Features and Advantages
- Wide Application Temperature Range (14-100 degrees F)
- Fast Setting (45 min. at 70 degrees F)
- High Early Strength
- Strong Chemical Bond (no cold joints)
- Chemical Resistant
- UV Light Resistant
- Freeze-Thaw Resistant
Easy to Use, No Special Tools or Trades Needed Patch Material
Transpo T-17 can be used as a neat mortar for grouting or thin applications (1/2” deep maximum). It also can be filled with special coarse aggregate and used for installations of 12 inches or more in a single pour. This system is to be used on horizontal concrete surfaces, on grade, above and below grade. Formwork can be used and is easily removed with use of plastic sheeting. The rapid curing time assures a quick return to service. T-17 is easy to handle in all working conditions and requires no special tools or equipment.
Application of T-17 requires minimal labor and standard portable concrete mixing equipment. A thin coat of T-41s methyl methacrylate primer should be used to seal the existing concrete surface and increase the bond strength of the T-17 to the Portland cement concrete (PCC) subtrate. Because of its high strength, chemical resistance, and rapid cure, T-17 can be used for repairs and rehabilitation of numerous concrete structures including:
- Concrete Bridge Repair
- Concrete Spall Repair
- Precast Bridge Deck Closure Pours
- Structural Grouting
- Partial or Full Depth Concrete Patch
- Expansion Joint Headers
- Structural Bearing Pads
- Load Transfer Devices
- Airport Runways
- Parking Deck Repair
- Pier Caps
Contact us for our T-17 Cold Weather product for applications below -7° C /20° F.
T-17 CW has a cold weather additive for applications below -7°C (it is not recommended for use above 0°C). The material can be applied at a minimum 13mm thickness. For deeper applications, T-17 CW should be extended with a specified aggregate. Typical concrete finishing tools can be used to place and finish T-17 CW polymer concrete.
