Polymer concrete (PC), or resin concrete, is a concrete that uses a polymer binder to supplement or replace cement as a binder. Polymers are made from simple organic molecules (monomers) that combine to form more complex structures through a process called polymerisation, hence the term polymers. Polymer concrete has a density of 2 260 kg/m3 and a compressive strength of 37 Mpa.
