Abstract

Theresult s of a study on the influence of environmental conditions on the cree p behaviour of polymer mortars are .presented. The compression creep behaviour is examined on six types of filled epoxy resins systems commonly used in the construc tion industry, using a simple spring-loaded system. The creep behaviours are examined at IOoC and 30°C with 45% and 60% RH. The creep behaviour at laboratory ambient condition is also included. Compressive strength results are also determined. The results indicate that the composition of polymer influences the creep behaviour of polymer mortars. The influence of temperature is more significant than the humidity on the creep behaviour
