Chuck Fifelski, CASE Technical Service & Development Specialist, recently published an article in the concrete bridge magazine, Aspire, titled, "Latex-Modified Concrete Use in Low Temperatures and Extended Wet-Cure Conditions." The article discusses the benefits of Latex-Modified concrete (LMC), its versatility in the bridge construction and repair space, and a recent study that showed LMC can be cured in colder temperatures than previously thought, thus allowing for an extended installation season and a faster reopening of traffic.
"Latex-modified concrete (LMC) plays an integral role in the story of our nation's infrastructure maintenance and repair. The use of latex as a performance-enhancing additive in modified concrete systems for bridge deck overlays is a proven technology. With a combination of excellent compressive, flexural, and bond strengths, an LMC overlay is one of the best choices for many bridge and roadway repair projects."
