Abstract

Innovation of concrete technology becomes important for conserving energy, according to the building’s structural design’s weight. Thus, lightweight concrete can be a solution because it has a low density with good quality and optimum strength. One substitute for concrete is plastic, a polymer material with a low density of 92 - 96 kg/m3. This study is an experimental study that aims to understand the effect of PET plastic (Polyethylene Terephthalate) usage in the manufacture of lightweight concrete with a design quality of 250 kg/cm2. The experimental work begins with a test of the material’s properties and then prepares a concrete mixture formula. The result shows that around 40% PET mixture percentage with the concrete compressive strength of 250 kg/cm2 (14 days old) and 205 kg/cm2 (28 days). In contrast, the weight that meets the SNI standard of lightweight concrete is 100% PET Variation.
