Properties of Non-Cement Lightweight Composite Matrix Using Organic Materials

Jin-Hyun Shin, Su-JeongPyeon and Sang-Soo Lee

Background/Objectives: Recently, when a fire occurs in buildings such as residential and commercial buildings, damage caused by harmful gases such as carbon monoxide due to incomplete combustion is increasing in walls using synthetic organic materials. Methods/Statistical analysis: In this study, to investigate lightweight matrix that have similar performance while solving the problems of existing insulating walls, we have developed an organic by - product, blast furnace slag, which is an inorganic by - product, Rice husk, charcoal, etc. are mixed to prepare a lightweight matrix, and the properties of are examined. Findings: The density decreased and the absorption rate increased as the amount of organic material used increased. The flexural strength and compressive strength tended to decrease, and the hardened material using charcoal showed higher strength than the hardened material using other organic materials. Rice straw showed the lowest thermal conductivity and thermal conductivity decreased. Improvements/Applications: As a result of this study, it is necessary to supplement the absorption rate and strength of lightweight composite panels using organic materials.
