Application of cassava pit waste mixed with cement to particle board wall for thermal resistance in building
MetadataShow full item record
This research aims to study the using cassava pit wastes mixed with cement to particle board walls. The Portland cement type1: fine sand: tap water ratio is equal to 1: 0.5: 0.416 by weight. The ratios of cassava pit wastes to cement are used following: 0.05, 0.06, 0.07, 0.08, 0.09, and 0.10 by weight. The cassava pit wastes are crushed by plastic plastics granulators (pass sieve no.4). The casting of particle board walls use the compression machine in room temperature (30 – 35 degree of Celsius) and control 0.75 g/cm3 of density. The TIS 878-2537 standard (cement bonded particle board: high density) is followed to test the properties of particle board wall. Resulting, the cassava pit wastes mixed with cement can cast to particle board walls and have good properties, especially the thermal insulation property.
