GREEN SEDIMENT BRICK
It begins with a few trial mixture of the sediment pressed brick to optimize the amount of cement and sediments to meet the requirement of compressive strength in ASTM C129. Then, physical and mechanical properties tests for brick accordance to ASTM C140 were carried out. Besides that, fire resistance test was also conducted to determine its resistivity to fire. Testing procedures for the brick such as compression test, water absorption test, flexural test and efflorescence are accordance to ASTM C140 and ASTM C67
Features and Specifications:
The green sediment bricks were developed from sediment of Ringlet reservoir
TNB Research have developed the bricks using 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 weight approximately ±3.3 - 3.5kg
It comes in two option, with / without colour
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.
The applications of green sediment brick can be widely use in construction industries;
Construction Materials (eg: wall, partition for building, fencing etc)
