The presented study examines the effect of SBR polymer latex on the performance of concrete composite containing (1%MgO powder + 0.75%polyolefin fibers). In this study, the amount of added latex to concrete composite was varied. Density, compressive strength, and flexural strength were measured. The results showed that SBR addition caused a reduction in compressive strength with increase the dosage of adding. Flexural strength at 28 days improved with increase of SBR dosage (2%, 4% and 6%) and the results recorded.
