Materials

Plastic components gained from the waste form the basic material, which can be considered homogeneous. There is also a possibility to add, if necessary, other additives too. These are the so-called compound materials.



The compressed SYLROCK board made from reduced waste can be used for building shelter and mobile houses, flood-protection, dams, or other facilities buried into the soil, such as sumps, bog-holes, cesspools, composting plants, outdoor furniture, columns, bicycle-roads, protective fences or ornamental architectural fixtures.


SYLROCK is easy to manage; it can be pegged, even near the edges, and bolted, welded, sawn and painted. It has outstanding features of strength, and it is abrasion-proof, acid- and alkali-resistant.  A normal brick would break at a load of 3 tons, while SYLROCK withstands  more than 15 tons of weight.

The price of finished products is very attractive, since the raw material is available in great quantity for free, and in some countries, even the environmental product tax is refunded in the case of recycling.     

Depending on the nature and amount of additive added to the basic plastic material of SYLROCK, a variety of compressed boards can be manufactured.


Combinations evaluated so far are the following: 


1.   Agricultural waste (sunflower rind, straw, maize stalk). The compound material manufactured is suitable for replacing materials of wood, which is not only cheaper, but also more durable and a stronger solution; not to mention environmental benefits.



2.      Rubber (e.g., tires) as an additive: Again, the result is an extremely durable and flexible material, which combines elasticity with high wear-resistance. It is suitable for outdoor pavements, platforms, bicycle roads, sporting grounds, other walkways and surfacing.

3.       Basic plastic material combined with soil as an additive: The result is a very hard, rigid material, which is easy-to-peg.  It can be used for cradling, bridging or replacing brick, concrete or other construction materials. In flooding areas, it can be used to establish a stable, water-proof foundation for brick-clay houses.



 

4.       Basic plastic material combined with gravel as an additive: This product is appropriate for building roads and pavements.

 

The above materials, as well as the blended SYLROCK  material, are patented. The number of combinations, however, is unlimited, which indicates a great variety of potential applications.

An example for potential applications: combined with barium sulfate, our material may be used as a protecting shield against nuclear radiation. By pegging boards to one another, the appropriate thickness can be achieved.
