Sauereisen polymer concrete is a heavy-duty castable used in the mining and precious metals refining industries. These products provide impressive physical strength, abrasion resistance and very low permeability. Polymer concrete can be an economical alternative to brick when project conditions call for a long-lasting system that is easy to install.
For applications subject to the highest concentrations of acid, a silicate-based material is available. Other formulations for more broad chemical exposure and even higher strength include epoxies, vinyl esters, and novolac hybrids of each.
