Abstract [en]

Τhe manufacturing and testing of gypsum bonded solid bricks with wood chips from particleboard production residues and rubber and textile fibers from waste tires was investigated. The recovered rubber and wood materials were mixed in gypsum/water solutions for the fabrication of standard solid bricks with six holes by using appropriate molds. After drying, the compressive strength, the thermal conductivity, the air-flow resistance, the sound absorption coefficient and the emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOC) of the bricks were determined. The compressive strength of solid bricks was much greater than that required in interior walls. The bricks showed a better thermal insulation than both the extruded and pressed house bricks but lower than the insulating bricks. Emissions of volatile organic compounds of bricks were at acceptable levels according to regulations for construction products. The sound absorption coefficient of the solid bricks was 0,72 for the frequency of 1 kHz and decreased with increasing frequency. In addition, information on the raw materials and production cost are given
