The LMC method of construction which have application to the road bridge is being considered the least relative importance about the watertight performance, because it focused on the durability of concrete. However, The LMC which is being expanded scope of application to the method of construction has grown importance about the watertight performance on the usability and maintenance side as well as durability. In this study, The latex concrete of two types which are different from mingled-ratio of the latex made a comparison to the compressive strength, watertight performance, dynamic wheel load resistance performance and confirmed what it has resistibility about chemical action through the chemical resistance test. The initial strength and watertight performance showed that were tendency the downward at 14 days. However, The long-term strength after 28 days showed that it has firm performance. In consequence, The initial curing of latex concrete is required to scrupulous care and attention at the site application. As a chemical resistance test result, The specimen that is steeped in sulphuric acid solution of 2% discovered the delamination phenomenon. However, it was confirmed that delamination phenomenon don't have an effect on the compressive strength. Moreover, As a dynamic wheel load resistance test result, The latex concrete was concluded to confirming the durability and running stability, because it had hardly any thickness reduction of latex concrete surface about dynamic wheel load and rarely found crack and delamination.
