Utilization of paper waste as aggregate in lightweight interlocking block from kaolin top soil
MetadataShow full item record
The objective of this research is to study about physical, mechanical, and thermal insulation properties of light-weight Kaolin top soil interlocking block mixed with milk carton waste. The ratio of cement: aggregates (Kaolin top soil and milk carton waste): sanitary water is 1: 7: 1 by weight. 10 ratios of aggregates (Kaolin top soil to milk carton waste ratio) are fixed at 7: 0, 6.8: 0.2, 6.6: 0.4, 6.4: 0.6, 6.2: 0.8, 6: 1, 5.8: 1.2, 5.6: 1.4, 5.4: 1.6, and 5.2: 1.8 by weight. The interlocking block samples are cast for testing the necessary properties followed the TCPS standard 602-2547. From the experiment, the best Kaolin top soil to milk carton waste ratio which has the most milk carton waste and can pass the standard is 6.2: 0.8. The suitable quantity of milk carton waste can reduce the density, water absorption, and thermal conductivity of Kaolin top soil interlocking block.
