ABSTRACT

These days, significant quantities of waste sand from sandblasting are being created, which in turn pollutes the environment. Utilizing sandblasting to remove accumulated biological matter and other dirt from concrete, steel, and wood components is an effective method. The purpose of the experimental laboratory is to investigate the exploitation of sandblasting waste in terms of mortar strength, concrete strength, absorption, and the mix's capacity to operate. Sand blasting produced by sand is widely available, hence the utilization of this waste as sand in concrete was investigated, using zero, 30%, and 40% substitution of normal sand and using aggregate grading in accordance with SNI-03-2834-2000. Using a 15x30 cm cylindrical test object with a treatment age of 7, 14, and 28 days ago, tests were conducted on the qualities of fresh concrete consisting of concrete viscosity values and hard concrete properties, namely specific gravity and compressive strength obtained by using waste sand. With 30% sandblasting sand replacement, specific gravity increases, corresponding to the prior test object's weight. From 7 to 14 days, specific gravity increased by 5.6%, and keep increased as 8.16% between 14 and 28 days. Specific gravity increases compared to concrete without waste sand (0% increasing) at 7 days, 4.43% at 14 days, and 10.87% at 28 days respectively, indicating that employing sandblasting waste increases cement binding. Therefore, it conforms to the compressive strength that increased by 10.09% from 14 days to 28 days. However, it decreased by 13.6% from 7 days to 14 days.
