Polymers render concrete fire-resistant

Self-compacting high-performance concrete has till now suffered from one weakness: when exposed to fire it flakes and splits, which reduces its loadbearing capacity. Scientists in Switzerland have now developed a method of manufacturing fire-resistant self-compacting high-performance concrete which maintains its mechanical integrity under these conditions.
