This project deals with the investigation of strength property of concrete made by partial replacement of cement using ion exchange resin waste. Ion exchange resin waste is readily available at free of cost in various industries. We are using the cation exchange resin waste from water softening process. This waste material is collected from a local place in Chennai In recent years, ion exchange resin is used in concrete for corrosion resistant purpose. The percentage replacements of cement by using ion exchange resin waste are 10%, 20% and 30% by weight. The results indicate The selected concrete grade is M30 and water cement ratio is 0.45. Cubes and cylinders are casted with the specified replacement of cement by using ion exchange resin waste. The strength has been checked at 7 days, 14 days and 28 days curing for the specimens made with specified partial replacement of cement by using ion exchange resin waste. Cubes are subjected to compressive strength test and cylinders are subjected to split tensile strength test. It has been concluded that the reasonable strength of 31.76 N/mm2 (Target strength of M20 grade concrete) may be attained in M30 grade mix ratio while adding ion exchange resin waste as 10% replacement of cement. So the optimum percentage of replacement of cement is 10% for both cubes and cylinders.
