Re: [papercreters] Additives

Im sure others may disagree, still after 1000 mixes i find the following to be the strongest most productive mix to be as follows -
Make mortar and add paper - Mortar typically is made with 3 of aggregate and one of cement - then add newspaper fiber - For instance, in one yard of material (27 cubic feet ) Half the mix would be fiber (approx. 80 pounds ) the other half would be  about 12 cubic feet of sand, perlite, or pumice, does not matter which, filled with 3 cubic feet of cements. Cements should be adjusted with 10 to 20 percent of pozzolonic material for the fastest cure and to get rid of the excess water that is held by the excess of unreacted calcium hydroxide in the cement - More later- ask questions _ Clyde T Curry
