ANALYSIS OF PROPERTIES OF CONCRETE USING SAFETY MATCHES POWDER AS ADMIXTURE
Keywords:Safety Matches Powder, Temperature Retardant, Admixture, Concrete Exothermal Reaction
Recently admixtures had made a major importance in the concrete manufacturing. These admixtures materials ranged from blood in the history to the recent retarding agents. In this paper analysis of properties of concrete using safety matches powder as admixture is studied and verified the strength of concrete and temperature emitted due to chemical reaction to the normal Portland cement. Using safety matches powder the temperature emitted due to exothermal reaction of concrete has reduced. This gives better results hence we can use this safety matches powder as an admixture where the reacting temperature and the emitting temperature place a crucial role in construction and maintenance.
