The Influence of Purification of Ethyl Acrylate on the Properties of Cement Matrix
This research mainly probes into the analysis of performance and assessment that ethyl acrylate polymer is applied to the cement matrix. The result shows that, before and after the purification, ethyl acrylate can increase the flowability of modified mortar, and with the increasing the dosage of polymer, the flowability is getting better. But if the dosage of hydrogen peroxide used to remove the residua alcohol is excessive, it is easy to cause high mortar viscosity, and that is unfavorable to the flowability. According to the setting time of the mortar under normal consistency, the result shows that the ethyl acrylate before the purification, has retarding effects on both initial and final setting time. With the increasing the dosage of polymer, it takes longer for both setting time. Besides, because hydrogen peroxide has accelerative effect, the purified ethyl acrylate can shorten the setting time of initial and final setting time. However, over dosage of hydrogen peroxide can easily lead to poor strength development in later stage. Using purified ethyl acrylate can overcome the shortcoming of lower strength of 3、7- day early stage. when hydrogen peroxide consumption is 0.5% of the total amount of acid and alcohol, the ethyl acrylate has the positive effect on improving the compressive strength. Finally, among the comprehensive assessments of the mortar testing results, EH0.5-0.1 has the significant effect of modification.
