    THIS CHAPTER ON POLYMER MODIFIED CONCRETE and Mortar is a revision of the original chapter in ASTM STP 169C by Kuhlmann and O'Brien. In January 1987, a Task Group was formed in Subcommittee C09.03.18 (C09.25) due to the need identified for standards development in the area of Polymer Modified Cementitious materials. This Task Group started the process, and then in June of 1989 this activity was organized under a new subcommittee, C09.03.19 (C09.44). Membership in this subcommittee numbers about 50. Committee C09.44 issued Latex and Powder Polymer Modifiers for Hydraulic Cement Concrete and Mortar (C 1438) and Test Methods for Polymer Modified Mortar and Concrete (C 1439) in 1999. These polymer modifiers mainly contribute to adhesion, water resistance, reduced permeability, and increased durability. Polymer modifiers are used in a variety of applications, such as patching compounds, stucco, ceramic tile thin sets and grouts, and bridge deck overlays. The first ASTM sponsored Symposium on Polymer Modified Concrete and Mortar was held in Louisville in June of 1992 with the papers being published in STP 1176 [1]. The current edition reviewed and updated the topics of the previous authors introduced new technology that has been developed and included up to date references.
