Re: [papercreters] Standard of papercrete



There is no standard as far as I know. Just about everybody develops their own formula. I use a varying recipe depending on what the pc is for. You'll see anywhere from 10% cement to paper (by weight) on up to 200% cement to paper, with various adjuncts like perlite, mica, fly ash, clay, sand, etc.

Not much testing has been done other than seat-of-the-pants tests on various projects. The University of New Mexico did some compression tests on bricks a couple of decades ago. You'll find a link in the files of the group. Several years ago there was a group organized to do all the formalities to get pc into the standard building codes but the group fell apart because of personality conflicts and the project died on the vine.

If you do testing or run across any documentation, please share with the group!

Re: [papercreters] Re: thin panels



Greetings,
Insurance isn't anything I would know or care about.  It is fireproof, so it should be better.  There are many ways to work with it, so research.  Personally, I am not paying for plywood, so mine sits on top of papercrete.  I do believe you attach them while still wet or before working on it, not after.

Well I have thousands of burlap bags and an unlimited amount of latex paint.
But does it pass insurance codes?
Does it go on top of just plain plywood? 

Do you nail the layers down to secure them until they are dry?

I would not take a chance on the roof. Instead of pc I would mix sand, Portland and latex paint {colored or not} and use a criss cross of window screen several layers thick and then paint the mixture on. This has shown to last 20 years in tropical Africa . If you need more info write me and I will dig up a link to the instructions for you.

Re: [papercreters] Re: thin panels



I am interested in this process.
It would work in a high desert area would it not?

Have you tried it?

Thanks
