particulate composite

Analysis of the Possibility of the Polymeric Aggregates Use in the Design of Building Block

Particulate composite was prepared from a mixture of cement, gravel and water with additions of a polyepoxide and/or expanded polystyrene in powder. For consolidation, each mixture was poured into a mold, remaining for a short period and then removed. For complete solidification the specimens were cured with water during the final stage. The weight, compressive strength and thermal conductivity of the composite were determined.
