A comparative study of the microstructure of both new and in-use aged blast-furnace slag cement coir reinforced composite was performed. Aged samples came from internal and external walls of a… (More)
Abstract The transition zone of short filament fibres randomly dispersed in a paste of ordinary Portland cement was analysed. Composites with vegetable fibres (malva, sisal and coir) were compared… (More)
Concrete can be protected by coatings, which may reduce the ingress of aggressive agents coming from external sources. Paints have a great importance on concrete durability due to the advantage of… (More)
The tests carried out in Brazil indicate that a composite material including vegetable fibres of the coir type are suitable for outdoor use in environments similar to that found in Sao Paulo.
Abstract Composites of blast furnace slag (BFS) based cement mortar reinforced with vegetable fibres are presented. Roofing components are produced with these composites through a simple and… (More)
