Application of Styrene-Butadiene Rubber in Cement-Based Materials
This paper summarizes the function of styrene-butadiene rubber (SBR) in cement-based materials, focusing on the achievements of the authors in recent years. The effect of SBR on the properties of cement mortar is introduced, i.e. the workability of fresh mortar such as the water-reduction and water-retention effects of SBR, the mechanical properties of hardened mortar such as the tensile bond strength, flexural and compressive strengths, flexibility and anti-impacting capacity, the waterproofness such as the capillary water adsorption and anti-penetration capacity, the microstructure such as the matrix structure and interface structure, and the cement hydration such as the calcium silicate hydrates, calcium aluminate hydrates and polymerization of [SiO4]4- tetrahedron.
