To Study the Properties of Latex Modified Concrete by Using Ceramic tile Powder as Partial Replacement of Cement

Kafeel Ahmad, Raj Bandhu Dixit


To improve the performance of concrete polymers are mixed with concrete. Addition of polymer makes concrete more durable than conventional. Industrial waste has been increased during last few years. Most of waste are dump for landfill without seeing it is possibility for reuse or recycle. In this research styrene butadiene rubber latex is used as percentage of cement in various percentage, 1.5%, 3%, 4.5%, 6%, 7.5%, 9%, 10.5% at an interval of 1.5%. The amount of latex which gave best result was taken and ceramic powder was used as replacement of cement (OPC) in various percentage, 10%, 20%, 30%, 40%, at an interval of 10% to get maximum strength. Total number of cubes specimen (150mmx150mmx150mm) made was 36, beams specimen (500mmx100mmx100mm) made were 36. Specimen was tested at 28 days. The aim of this study was to get strength of concrete by use of latex and ceramic powder as compared with standard concrete.
