Recommendations of RILEM TC 260-RSC for using Superabsorbent Polymers (SAP) for Improving Freeze-Thaw Resistance of Cement-Based Materials
This recommendation is focused on application of superabsorbent polymers (SAP) for the improvement of the resistance of cement-based materials to freeze—thaw attack with or without deicing salts. A simple approach to the determination of the amount and properties of SAP as well as methods to verify SAP effectiveness for frost resistance protection are presented.
