The special issue "Polymer Composites for Construction Application" aims to collect works related to the wide variety of polymers used in construction, new trends in the use of various polymers, applications in construction and housing equipment and other public works, physical and chemical characteristics of polymers and balance between the construction needs of the population and the protection of the environment.
Contributions related to the proposed lines of research are appreciated and that allow improving the management and knowledge of these materials, whose evolution has been slow until the middle of the last century, but that because of the "plastic revolution", society and the construction sector underwent an exceptional change with the entry of synthetic polymers.
The main idea is to promote the development of new composite materials and new applications in the construction sector. There are numerous experts in developing and manufacturing high-quality polymers, more durable or with greater adhesive or sealability. Polymers are not only used to improve materials, but also to prevent structural damage to the building.
Therefore, this special issue can help complement the existing literature on Polymer Composites for Construction Application from a multidisciplinary perspective that encourages the exchange of ideas and points of view. For this reason, we encourage all researchers working in areas of knowledge related to construction materials and green buildings to submit their potential research.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Polymers is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2700 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
