Analysis of the influence of partial replacement of mineral aggregate by basaltic rock dust on the production of industrialized adhesive mortar
Keywords:Sustainability, Stone dust waste, Industrialized adhesive mortar, Replacement, Sand
The production of adhesive mortar uses large proportions of sand, causing undesirable environmental impact as this is a finite resource. In recent years, the insertion of civil construction waste in cement matrixes has intensified with the objective of replacing sand in the mortar manufacturing process. Therefore, in this study, the proportions of 5%, 10%, 15% substitution of the mineral aggregate by basalt dust waste in the production of industrialized adhesive mortar were adopted. The reference mixture of 1:3 (cement: sand) was adopted and the water/dry material ratio was set at 0.20. The adhesive mortars produced in the tests to determine the consistency index, water retention, mass density, open time, tensile strength and water absorption by capillarity were analyzed. The results were satisfactory, demonstrating that it is feasible to use the waste as a substitute for sand in the production of industrialized adhesive mortars.
