The present paper reviews the recent status of research and development activities of concrete-polymer composites such as polymer-modified concrete (mortar), polymer concrete (mortar) and polymer-impregnated concrete (mortar) in the Japanese construction industry. Polymer-modified concrete (mortar) comprise of repair systems for deteriorated reinforced concrete structures, strengthening (or retrofitting) methods and exfoliation (or delamination) prevention methods for existing reinforced concrete structures, liquid-applied membrane waterproofing systems, advanced polymeric admixtures such as high-grade redispersible polymer powders and hardener-free epoxy resins, intelligent repair materials, application of accelerated curings, semiflexible pavements, and drainage pavements with photocatalyst. Polymer mortar and concrete are related to new liquid resins, setting shrinkage control, thermal properties and temperature dependence, lightweight or porous polymer mortars and concretes, artificial marble products and precast products. The polymer-impregnated mortar and concrete are mainly concerned with field polymer impregnation techniques using silane-based barrier penetrants.
