Özet

In this study, the useability of high density polypropylene textile waste in composites was investigated. Main materials are PC 42,5 white Portland cement, lime, sieved natural sand and vinyl acrylic binder in the composites. In the experiments, a composite material was selected as the control specimen in which any polypropylene and binder were used, also polypropylenes which have different width were used in the other composites. At the end of the 1, 3, 7,14 and 28 days curing times; by using these polypropylenes, the composites indicated the lower compressive strengths meanwhile the higher water absorption and also no shrinkage according to the control specimen, the repairing properties such as prevention of microcrackings were obtained especially, it was concluded that this application can be useful in commercial repairing and plaster applications.
