Abstract

The difficulties associated with conventional synthetic resins, principally high viscosity, quick polymerization, and short pot life are circumvented by using this resin. The technique is especially appropriate for the treatment of exceptionally dense, clayey, and moist, unconsolidated samples with appreciable shrink-swell potential.-from Author.
