EPS (Expanded Polystyrene Beads), Tensile Strength, Compression Strength, Adhesieve Super Plasticizer-MASTER RHEOBULD 920SH


The modern construction technology is finding its importance in objects that have very low weight materials which give all the properties and parameters that are equal to that of the traditional methods of construction. The solid cellular brick technology that lays very significant role in preparing the modern construction materials by using mortar which are replacing with expanded polystyrene beads instead of aggregate materials Such as coarse aggregate (i.e., 5%, 10%, 15%, 20%, 25%), this project deals with preparing of materials that gives masonry standard, like absorption, tensile strength, compression strength and other inflammable properties that are needed for the construction. Also this provides flexibility to have less cracking of walls, which happen due to greater adherence these EPS materials are very much preventive for moisture. This provides not only technical advantages but also it provides commercial advantages both for the consumers and also for the vendors. The dry polystyrene materials that facilitates for rapid elaboration, transportation and quality control that is economical, recyclable and has the properties that prevent deterioration increasing in its useful life, materials we use in this project is MASTER RHEOBULD 920SH which is known as super plasticizer that provides less dependence on consolidation energy, higher productivity and keeps high adhesive properties for providing dry super plasticizer concrete for construction.
