dc.description.abstractFiber reinforced mortars (FRM) are growingly used in several fields of building technology (e.g., façade panels, roofing, raised floors and masonry structures) as building elements. One of the promising type of fiber for these composite materials can be textile waste originated from cloth wastes. The use of this sort of recycled materials and wastes as cement reinforcement within the building sector can play a relevant role in sustainability, both the environmental, economic and social perspectives. In this paper, the design mechanical properties (flexural and compressive strengths at 7, 28 and 56 days as well as toughness and stiffness) together with durability properties of cement pastes reinforced with short Textile Waste Fiber (TWF) in contents ranging from 6 to 10 % by weight fraction cement was investigated. The results were compared with those obtained from Kraft Pulp pine Fiber (KPF), taken as reference. The main conclusion is the feasibility of using this type of fiber as potential reinforcement in construction materials with the optimum dosage of 8%. Although the flexural resistance and toughness of the TWF composite are lower than KPF control by almost 9%, the compressive strength and stiffness together with durability properties have proven to be enhanced respect to the reference composite.
