Topic: Advice on use of Portland Pozzolana Cement and Granite Dust in RCC

Sir,

Could you please advise me on usage of Portland Pozzolana Cement (with 30% Fly ash mix) and Granite Dust (as 20 % of fine aggregate)  as partial substitutes for Portland Cement and River Sand, in RCC roofing. Will these alternate materiel have any effect on quality and cost of RCC?

Sources of supplies and suppliers for both Fly ash and Granite Dust located / available within 50 kms of construction site.

Thanks

Dear Nasad

          In my view the alternative have not much effect on cost. For RCC slab do not use Portland Pozzolana cement use 43 grade Portland cement with river sand or stone dust but one thing also clear that the sand should not have silt more than 4%. Wash the sand before use.

Sir,

@SL Gupta and @akmurty1, Thanks a lot for the valuable advice.

If commercially available PPC (with ISI specs) is used in Mortar along with Granite Dust for walls and plastering, is there any need for adding any Resin to the mix, to prevent cracking? If yes, could you please suggest an appropriate Resin and the ratio of Resin by volume?

Thanks

Dear Nasad

In my view there is no need to mix resin in mortar for wall and plastering.

Use precaution for wall construction and plastering as per link below

As cracks there are varios reasion as per link below
