Abstract:Potential of wastepaper fibers for the reinforcement of thin-sheet cement products was investigated. The slurry-dewatering method followed by pressing was used to manufacture the products. The fiber reinforcement conditions, matrix mix composition, and processing variable were optimized through experimental studies and statistical analyses based on fractional factorial design of experiments and analyses of variance of results. The results are indicative of strong potentials for the recycling of wastepaper for the reinforcement of thin cement products.
