Polypropylene Waste, CONCRETE
In recent years use of polypropylene material is increased day by day and management of polypropylene waste is the new primary challenging issue faced by the countries all over the world. It is very challenging and hectic problem that has to be tackled in an indigenous manner, use of polypropylene waste in concrete is better solution for environment. In this research an experimental study is carried out to investigate the feasibility and use of polypropylene waste in concrete for new construction. The present investigation to be focused on use of polypropylene waste materials in order to reduce construction cost and environment pollution problems faced by whole world. The strength properties of M20 grade concrete are studied with polypropylene waste percentage proportions. The polypropylene proportions are 5% by volume. We studied strength properties of these mixes. There is increase in compressive strength when the polypropylene waste is replacing 5% with sand by volume.
