Abstract

A number of durability study on sustainable and ecofriendly platers/mortars produced from the use of glass activated plastic (GAP) industrial waste have been documented. Several tests were conducted on cement plasters formed by the replacement of aggregate with GAP industrial waste in a range of 0-20%. Outcomes of the study revealed approximately 37% decrease in strength properties depending on the percentage replacement of the GAP waste powder. The recorded decrease could play the role of an enhancer towards the durability of the specimen and as such, shows good potential for use.
