Abstract

In favor of the circular economy, the European 2020 Strategy aims to advance towards 80% of the recycled containers by the year 2020. Currently, in Spain, 66.5% of plastics are recycled. The problem is the existence of different types of plastics, what makes difficult to recycle them, due to they are often not compatible because they are not a homogeneous material. The objective of the research is to study the mechanical behavior of micro-concrete, with the addition of film chippings as a partial substitute for gravel, in order to obtain a lighter and more sustainable concrete. To make this possible, a campaign of experimental tests has been carried out, which allows us to determine the mechanical properties of the material and its density. Six cylindrical specimens of diameter 100 mm and 200 mm height were made for compression tests and six prismatic specimens of 520x100x30 mm3, for impact tests, which were tested after 28 days. The results obtained have been compared with concretes without additions, to determine the goodness of the compression and impact material. The results obtained show that the incorporation of film chippings produces a good workability in the concrete, decreases its density by approximately 10% and improves the impact resistance results, although its compression resistance decreases.
