ABSTRACT

Waste materials have become a serious problem in many branches of industry, including also civil engineering. The amount of waste generated in civil engineering is still growing, and therefore, the application of recycling in the construction industry is highly justified. In the present paper we demonstrate the effects resulting from the application of polymer raw materials from the recycling process. It particularly involves the recycling of raw materials from polypropylene applied in the production of plastic connectors and their impact on the load-bearing efficiency of fixing elements. The research combines also material characteristics and the properties of the investigated connectors. The research tests carried out on the connectors consisted in the assessment of their load-bearing capacity at fixing places in a base made of concrete class C20/25 or from solid ceramic brick.
