ABSTRACT

Agricultural wastes and sawdust combined with cement matrix in the manufacture of building elements has been practiced with success in developed countries. In this study, sawdust from wood species (Pinus caribaea and Eucalyptus grandis) and an agricultural waste—rice husk (Oriza sativa) were combined with Portland cement type V (high initial strength), modified by polymer styrene-butadiene (SBR) addition. Hollow blocks produced with Eucalyptus grandis and rice husk residues showed better compressive strength; however, those produced with residues derived from Pinus caribaea presented non-satisfactory results, due to the particle size that was used.
