Abstract:The hydraulic tile is a cement material produced in a handmade way, pressed, composed by three layers. With the coming of sidewalks adaptation in accessibility patterns, the tactile-floor tile hydraulic was developed to constitute the floor strip of alert for vision disabled people. The work has the objective to develop the mix design of the tile containing hydraulic binder with addition of granite residue. Properties analyzed: water absorption, rupture load, flexural modulus and wear by abrasion test. It was verified that the addition of residue to the tile, that it acted as a filler, promoted improvements in the analyzed properties; which makes the addition of granite residue an alternative technically feasible for the use in sidewalks and also a contribution to the sustainable development of the sector of granite improvement.
