There are now cork-cement composites, mudcrete for road bases and land reclamation, glass concrete for aesthetics, rubberized concrete, polymer concrete, geopolymer green concrete, limecrete, strong and light hempcrete with good insulating properties, papercrete, and even "smog-eating" concrete.
These adhesives form durable bonds on most types of steel, aluminum, ceramics, glass concrete, wood, and fabric while eliminating the problems associated with two-component adhesives (off-ratio mixing, short plot lives and working times, and clogged dispensers.) Most formulations are resistant to oil and chemical solutions.
The main problem in glass concrete is related to alkali-silica reaction (ASR), which was the major concern that thwarted the use of WG cullet in construction sectors [4, 14-16].
Moreover, the microstructure of glass concrete contains more voids than conventional concrete due to the insufficient cement paste available inside the matrix which in turn adversely affects the bonding between concrete components [31].
