Experimental Investigation On Latex Modified Basalt Fibre Concrete
M.Arul kumar,  R. Ravi,  A. Vijay,  M. Sowmiya,  V. Soundappan
This report deals with the method of using polymer modified basalt fibre concrete in areas having special requirements. Polymer modified concrete (PMC) have superior characteristic behavior when compared to conventional concrete. Fibre reinforced concrete (FBR) is also proven to be quite successful in strength and maintenance aspects. This paper describes the property of concrete in which both fibre (basalt fibre) and polymer (Styrene Butadiene Rubber-SBR) is used together, thus called as Latex Modified Basalt Fibre Concrete (LMBFC). This will be a preferable solution in repair work of concrete elements or used in areas where concrete have to face severe conditions. Three different percentage of basalt fibre were used in the concrete (0.1%,0.3%,0.5%) and most suitable percentage is chosen based on the test results. Polymer concentration is kept at 10% at weight of cement . A study over mechanical property of the LMBFC showed that they have viable increase in those properties. Comparison was made between the conventional concrete and the LMBFC at the stages of curing and the results obtained were satisfactory. And it is also observed that addition of polymer reduces w/c ratio and curing period is reduced thus saving more water.
Keywords- LMBFC ,SBR , FBR, Basalt fibre.
