Iranian researchers improve mechanical properties of concrete with carpet waste

Researchers at Isfahan University of Technology by acquiring technical know-how on the improvement of carpet waste, have improved the physical and mechanical properties of concrete.

Carpet waste can be used to reduce the weight of concrete products such as polymeric concrete and cement concrete as a cheap filler. Given the economical considerations in the production of polymer concrete due to the high cost of resin used, this problem can be somewhat removed by the addition of dispersed polymer materials such as modified carpet wastes. These materials can be used as cheap and affordable lightweight materials for the manufacture of concrete cement with improved physical and mechanical properties.

In this regard, researchers at Isfahan University of Technology have improved the mechanical properties of concrete in a research project sponsored by the Research and Technology Fund of Vice President Department for Science and Technology affairs, using modified carpet wastes. Carpet waste as a lightweight material can lead to the production of lightweight polymer concrete for use in various building applications that require high strength and lower weight.
