Innovative Polymer-Modified Pervious Concrete

Conference paper

Abstract

The United States generates a tremendous amount of waste latex paint annually, which is a significant challenge to recycle as it contains volatile organic compounds. However, waste latex paint can be utilized to produce an economic latex-modified pervious concrete that is superior to regular pervious concrete. This study evaluates pervious concrete produced using waste latex paint in comparison to regular pervious concrete as well as that produced using commercially manufactured styrene-butadiene rubber. Waste latex paint added to concrete results in characteristics comparable to polymer-modified concrete made with commercial latex products.
