Title: RECYCLING EVA FROM FOOTWEAR INDUSTRY AS AGGREGATES FOR CEMENT MORTAR
Issue Date: 2019-09-04
Abstract: This paper reports the development of a new cementitious mortar using an ethyl-vinylacetate (EVA) waste product from the footwear industry. The main goal of this study wasto evaluate the influence of the replacement of part of the silica aggregates by EVA on theproperties of the recycled mortar, namely the density, slump-flow, flexural strength andcompressive strength. The study included three incorporations of EVA with granulometriesin the millimetric and micrometric ranges. The results proved that the increase of the EVAcontent leads to a significant strength decrease, which is attenuated in the case of themicrometric EVA incorporation.
