    Abstract

    Construction industry like any other areas of economic and social life undergoes a continuous modifications and improvements in order to successfully comply with the requirements of sustainable development. Consumers demand more durable, less labour and service intensive materials at a competitive price. To meet these expectations various types of modifications of concrete has been proposed. One of the promising solutions is modification of concrete by Superabsorbent Polymers (SAP). This paper presents the review of the recent developments in the area of SAP modified cementitious composites.
