Shetty, MS and Sikand, D (1978) Application of polymer concrete in developing countries. In: 1976 International Symposium on Polymers in Concrete at the 1976 ACI-IMCYC, 24-26 Oct 1976, Mexico, pp. 205-213.

Developing Countries are trying their beat to ao ieve rapid progress in the fields of 88rioulture, industry and housing. Progress in these spheres involves large scale construction activities. Cement concrete, hitherto has been one of the important materials of construction, in spite, of ita many drawbacks. The newly developed "Polymer Concrete" possessing many .superior properties over conventional cement concrete, renders itself as one of the most versatile construction materials. concrete in particular, is highly suitable in case of pre-fabricated building industry, irri8ation structures, marine structures, nuclear power production and desalination plants. It is worthwhile for these countries to develop or borrow polymer concrete Technology and apply it judiciously for achieving tangible benefits. © 1978 American Concrete Institute.
