Waste PET bottles, Demolition waste dust, Compressive Strength test, Water Absorption test


The rapid increase in plastic and demolition wastes technology through municipal and commercial industries becomes large issue to advanced and growing countries. The replacement of conventional construction materials with reused materials is a feasible arrangement which mitigates landfilling concerns and decreases the requirement for virgin quarry materials. In these studies, an assessment of Polyethylene terephthalate (PET) plastic waste and its blends, with demolition waste dust had been undertaken. The waste PET bottle is first shredded and soften in the container after which the demolition waste dust is different proportions. The experiments had been accomplished are compressive strength, water absorption and dimension tolerance check. The proportion of waste PET bottles is to be used are 20%, 30%, 40%, 50% by weight. The 30% waste PET bottles+ 70% demolition waste dust have higher compressive strength from the different mix samples. Water absorption is decreases with increases the percentage of PET bottle content in demolition waste dust.
