UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
DecoBrick is a decorative product in which used plastic cups are employed in an environmentally friendly way. Let’s think of the millions used plastic coffee, tea cups and packaging pieces; they build up huge piles of plastic wastes which have completed their lifecycles. DecoBrick has come to life as an answer to the question ‘How can we use this plastic waste heap in the most efficient way?’. This design uses 4 to 6 pieces of plastic waste that are placed in a simple plastic mold, which later form a 3D brick system. DecoBrick can be re-created everyday thanks to the variety of its pieces. The system can be used at building walls, gardens and in many different areas. If 4-6 pieces used plastic unit were collect and put in a very simple mould system design and every one can easily create 3-d brick systems. Then ever one can easily create unlimited variation of d-eco brick applications and used in an eco sensitive manners. The principle of the idea is very simple, • Create a new area in re-usage of the waste (plastic parts) in a new effective ways. • Create new opportunities in carbon free and eco-decorating in building production. • Create a huge potential for the customers in do-it your self decorating in green world. • Create a new perspective for simple production methods for under developed societies • No need to expert work and education to produced. • Have huge alternative of site-applications, like on wall, ground or basement applications, in the pools etc. With these systems customers can create more and more green walls and yards to reduce the carbon rates. Also heat prevention will directly improve too. You can create a new d-eco brick every day. The system has 4 used caps and chipboard mould basement. You can use mould system at least in two different ways. The one is more textured (exterior) and the second way is hollow type for specialized on planting purposes. And every one can easily make eco-deco arrangement on walls and yards and small pool bases with d-deco bricks and plants for create a greener environment The main material is cement with natural stone surfaces finishing.. The plastics are ground up and then mixed with Portland cement and chemical additives to make the bricks and something The D-eco project will hires unemployed people to make the bricks. The participants can also use the bricks to build their own houses. d-eco bricks are few cheaper than traditional bricks, but comparable in terms of durability, water and fire resistance, with good heat and sound insulation properties and on wall green applications. In outdoor exposure tests undertaken by over the course of two years, the materials stood up well to both weather and ultraviolet radiation.
