Polymer concrete is manufactured using sand and resin. Polymer concrete is a risk-free material for long-term use under continuous load with almost unbeatable physical and chemical properties. It is manufactured by a simple casting and curing process and the final product in most cases does not require any additional steps that would be necessary when using other building materials, such as plastering, sanding, painting or sealing.
No water absorption, therefore also frost-proof
PolyCare MAS (“Modular Assembly System”) achieves the rapid creation of decent living and utility space through the innovative use of polymer concrete.
Compared to cement concrete, polymer concrete has outstanding physical properties and the additional advantage that it cures within a few hours. The formulation developed by PolyCare is based on inexpensive polyester resin, 40% of which is made from recycled PET bottles.
Our process requires significantly less resin than the production of conventional polymer concrete and at the same time allows the use of inexpensive filling material such as desert sand. Another advantage is that around four cubic meters of construction material can be created from one cubic meter of polymer concrete.
Very high flexural strength and compressive strength allow thin-walled dimensioning of the end products.
Thus, one cubic meter of polymer concrete can easily be converted into 20 square meters of wall area, whereas cement concrete has a wall area of only about four square meters. In addition, polymer concrete is water-repellent and thus frost-resistant and does not require a conventional foundation.
We continue to pioneer in the fields of polymer concrete but also look into other solutions that fit our vision of a sustainable and affordable housing market.
Polymer concrete sets in only 20 minutes
and the MAS element can be demoulded.
Approx. 90 % are freely available raw materials such as desert sand or residual materials from mines or even ash.
The end product is particularly environmentally friendly. Once bound substances in this product do not react any more with the environment.
Polymer concrete has a life of at least 80 years and has compressive strength of between 67-111 N/mm2.
Since local production can be set up easily long logistics chains and transport costs avoided.
The energy required for the entire production is very small and the during the setting process emerging energies can be used again.
Can be used again. This saves valuable resources. An important ecological aspect when choosing the construction method.
The graph shows a network diagram for the comparison of polymer concrete and classic cement concrete. The same orientation applies to all axes and the values that tend to be better are at the outer ends of the axes
