Green Sediment Brick
In Cameron Highlands, regular dredging has been conducted by TNB to combat the sedimentation problem. Around 200,000 m3 of sediments from Ringlet Reservoir were dredged annually and resulted in limited space of disposal area which was estimated to last for less than 25 years. Thus, an R&D project was conducted to study the properties of the sediments and their potential to be used to form products.
The Green Sediment Bricks were developed using a mixture of sediment (silt and sand), concrete, and water with dimension ±3.2mm from standard dimension (215 mm x 102.5 mm x 65 mm). The bricks weigh approximately ±3.3 - 3.5kg and it comes in two option, with/without color.
Compressive Strength varies depends on duration of curing and range between 6.3.– 12.8 MPa. It is better from cement sand brick with strength of 7 MPa.
Pass 2 hour fire resistance test by SIRIM and obtain Certificate from BOMBA.
The green sediment bricks were developed from waste material and using high pressure instead of burning process.
