Utilization of Waste Packaging Glass as Progressive Filler in Polymer Anchor Material Based on Epoxy Resin
The work deals with the use of waste glass to the polymer anchor material based on epoxy resin, primarily for anchoring to a high strength concrete (HSC). The main aim was to use the largest possible amount of the waste packaging glass by reducing the amount of epoxy resin, which is an expensive material and its production has a negative impact on the environment. Within the experimental verification, the influence of waste packaging glass fraction 0–0.63 mm on the final properties of the polymer anchoring material was observed. To determine the optimal formulation compressive strength, flexural strength, chemical resistance, shrinkage and pull-out test were performed. Based on the evaluation of the results the optimal percentage of filling was determined, when the polymer anchor material showed high strengths, minimal shrinkage, good chemical resistance, optimal consistency for anchoring into the HSC and high anchor bolt pull-out strength.
