What Is Polymer Concrete?

Polymer concrete is made from selectively-graded aggregates in combination with a polymer resin system. When combined through a process of mixing, molding and curing, an extremely powerful cross-linked bond is formed. Precast polymer concrete is reinforced with fiberglass for exceptional strength and rigidity.


Why Use Polymer Concrete?
  • Lightweight — 1/10 to 1/3 the weight of concrete
  • High Strength — compressive, flexural and tensile strengths three to five times higher than traditional concrete
  • Reduced Installation Costs — easy to handle, no special equipment required
  • Stable Under Freeze/Thaw Conditions
  • Impact Resistant — tested per ASTM D-2444
  • Low Water Absorption — less than 1% per ASTM D-570
  • Corrosion Resistant — resistant to alkalines, acids, weathering and other forms of deterioration
  • Cost Effective — outperforms conventional materials for longer service and lower life cycle costs
  • Nonflammable — will not support combustion
  • Nonconductive — no grounding required for the box or cover

QUAZITE® enclosures are embedded in concrete highway median barriers.
Design Possibilities

Precast polymer concrete offers a variety of design possibilities.

  • Development of New Parts — Years of experience enable QUAZITE® engineers to produce custom designed parts to your specifications.
  • Size — Monolithic enclosures are being made up to 4' x 8' x 4'. Pads for cabinets or equipment enclosures are currently being made as small as 25" x 38" and as large as 93" x 93" and even larger when bolted together. If other sizes are required, contact our Lenoir City Division Customer Service Department by phone at 800-346-3062 or send an EMAIL.
  • Composite Design — An experienced staff is available to assist in the development of specifications and design of products.
  • Custom Accessories — Many options are available for QUAZITE® products, including racking and struts, knockouts, holes, logos, terminators, gaskets, pulling eyes, and numerous other options. Please see Hardware Options for a complete listing of options.
