Comparative Analysis Of Physical Properties Of Plastic Coated Aggregates

2018 Zenodo  
Plastic waste is increasing because of population growth,development and urbanization . The disposal of waste plastic has become a serious problem globally due to their non - biodegradability. Plastics can be divided into two major categories:thermoset and thermoplastics.Therefore it is essential to utilize the wastes effectively in each field. Use of this waste mix for road construction helps to use plastics Waste . Once the plastic waste is separated from solid waste,the organic matter can be

The % of plastic content adopted for the study was 0%,2%,3% and 5%. The methodology for the making of plastic coated aggregates is discussed in the study. The improvement is physical properties of aggregated due to coating of plastic can widen the scope of plastic coated aggregates in concrete pavements also.
