The effect of factors on the process of obtaining phenol-cresol-formaldehyde resin (PhCR-F) has been studied. By using empirical evidence, the adequate experimental statistical-mathematical (ESM) model has been developed. Based on this model, the optimal values of the process factors for obtaining PhCR-F have been identified, bringing about both high yield and softening point of the resin. Data predicted on the basis of the ESM model were compared with empirical evidence about PhCR-F preparation.
The phenol-cresol-formaldehyde resin (PhCR-F) obtained from phenolic fraction of coal tar has been synthesized via the polycondensation method of “raw” phenols with formaldehyde. The modification of road bitumen by this resin was carried out. PhCR-F in different concentrations was found to be effectively used as a modifier of road bitumen. It was shown that PhCR-F is an effective adhesive additive for road bitumen. The structural types of the oxidized and modified bitumen were determined according to the group-chemical composition and calculated criteria.
The physicochemical properties of surface of the metal-containing polymer-silicate composites, which have been obtained due to compatible precipitation of water-soluble polymers and silicates under the influence of metal chlorides, such as specific surface area, the number of active centers, moisture absorption, sorption ability were studied.
The principles of creating of multimodal composite Portland cements with optimized void filling, that based on synergistic combination of ultrafine active mineral additives with superplasticizer were established. The optimization of multimodal multicompositе Portland cements was carried out and the relationship between the phase composition, microstructure and strength of the cement matrix were investigated.
A study of the rheological properties of self-compacting fiber reinforced concrete mixtures with additives of modifiers and microfillers and performance characteristics of concrete based on these mixtures has been carried out.
The glass wastes as a cullet are widely used for the production of building materials mainly as inert aggregate. However finely grained glass powder has the very developed surface, so can not be passive toward cement solutions, what was confirmed in practice. In literature data there is no information about chemical influence of finely grained glass on the process of hardening, especially in an early pre-induction hydration period, which substantially causes the structure formation of cement stone and its properties.
Physico-chemical properties of specially modified forms of natural biopolymers – carboxymethyl cellulose and xanthan gum – were studied. The effectiveness and ability to film formation of water soluble polymeric compositions of these biopolymers, their influence on the growth and productivity of agricultural crops were examined. The effect of the biopolymers, mineral fertilizers and micronutrients content in the solution on its viscosity, as well as the dependence of the formed films thickness on the content of modified biopolymers and fertilizers were investigated.
The investigation results of type B fine asphalt concrete and its form modified by rapeseed oil epoxide are represented. The efficiency of ERO addition and its positive effect on the physico-mechanical properties of asphalt concrete has been established.
Three commercial road emulsions on the basis of petroleum bitumens differing by their production method (oxidated, distillation and modified bitumens) and Redicote E-11 emulsifier were obtained. The obtained emulsions were used for the production of Slurry Seal and thin-layer road coatings on its basis. The coatings based on modified oxidated bitumen have more advantages compared with those based on oxidated bitumen. The expensive distillation bitumen may be exchanged for modified oxidative one to use it in a Slurry Seal technology.
