Abstract: A laboratory investigation was conducted to assess the potential of Some resins and non-portland cements for structural concrete at low temperatures. The resins investigated were urethane (non-hydrophilic), epoxy and polyester, as well as a polysulfide polymer. Two non-portland (modified) cements were also tested. The curability of the resins, when mixed with fine aggregate, showed that they had potential for low temperature use in the following decreasing order: urethane, polyester, and epoxy. Of the non-portland cement materials, mixed as individual neat slurries, one showed potential for low temperature use at -10°C (using 3.9°C water).
