Experimental Study on the Utilization of Borosilicate Glass Powder in Concrete

J Ramprashath | N Chellakavitha


Abstract: Glass from a light bulb is a waste product that cannot be utilized in a traditional way. This study looks into the possibilities of using lamp borosilicate glass powder as a cement replacing admixture in conventional concrete. Compressive Strength of the Concrete after partly replacing cement with Borosilicate Glass Powder for various percent such as 5 %, 10 %, 15 %, 20 % was tested and the optimum percentage of replacement was found to be 20 %. Moreover the water absorption capacity of both R 20 % and CC was tested. Finely grounded Borosilicate Glass Powder of particle Size 4 Micrometer shows good performance and properties towards partial replacement of cement in Concrete.
