Concrete Products with Waste's Plastic Material (Bottle, Glass, Plate)


Article Preview

Plastic material is not easily biodegradable even after a long period, in fact a wide variety of waste materials can be utilized as inert in matrix cement. In this paper we have focused the attention on the use of plastic material particles incorporated as aggregate in concrete and we have evaluated the chemical, physical and mechanical properties
