COMPARATIVE ANALYSIS OF PHYSICAL PROPERTIES OF PLASTIC COATED AGGREGATES
Main Article Content
Plastic waste is increasing because of populationgrowth,developmentandurbanization. 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 essentialto utilize the wastes effectively in each field. Use of this waste mix for road construction helps to use plasticsWaste. Once the plastic waste is separated from solid waste, the organic matter canbetransformedinto manure and utilized.This study was aimed at showing the effect of different content of plastic by weight on the aggregates properties. 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. Theimprovement is physical properties of aggregated due to coating of plastic can widen the scope of plastic coated aggregates in concrete pavements also.
