Abstract
The aim of this research work is to study the effect of different percentages of waste rubber coming from pipe foam insulation addition in the thermal performance of a gypsum matrix. Four particle size waste rubber: 1-2 mm, 2-4 mm, 4-6 mm and 20-25 mm, and different rates of waste rubber addition: 1.25%; 2.50%; 5.00% and 7.50% were analyzed. After deciding the optimal size and percentage of waste rubber, two combinations were chosen to carry out the thermal test. Furthermore, in order to characterize its mechanical behavior, an experimental plan was elaborated to study its density, flexure strength and compression strength. This addition contributes to obtain a low density, lightweight, environmentally friendly material with improved thermal performance.
