Banana Tiles: 7 times stronger than ceramic tiles.. What is special about these students' 'banana tiles'? | Telugu News


Made From Banana Fiber These Tiles Are About Seven Times Stronger Than Ceramic Tiles

Banana Tiles: Tile.. Tiles are one of the materials that bring beauty to homes and offices. Tiles made with modern technology in various designs are now available in the market. But these tiles are all made of ceramic. But as an alternative to these, engineering students from Bangalore made tiles from banana fiber and felt aura. They are waterproof due to the resin coating on them. These tiles have been proven to be seven times stronger than ceramic tiles through various tests.

Stronger than ceramic tiles.

Typically, tiles made of ceramic can withstand pressures of up to 1,300 newtons. However, the tiles made by the engineering students from banana fiber withstood a stress of 7,500 newtons in the test. The flexural test recorded at 52.37 percent megapascal and proved that the load bearing capacity is higher than that of ceramic tiles.

-These are the reasons for high strength..

Tiles made from banana fiber have been found to withstand high pressure due to their high tensile strength.These are made by mixing the two materials with hardening chemical solutions like calcium carbonate and sodium hydroxide. Amit Kumar, one of the four students of MJV College of Engineering, who made them, said that it will increase its resistance, tensile strength and thickness. It has been revealed that these are made in seven layers. These sheets are placed at 0 degree, 30 degree and 60 degree angle to ensure tight packing using vacuum before resin coating, said Amit.

-Preparation like this..

The process begins by soaking the banana fiber in a sodium hydroxide solution. Then a hardening tool is used. Calcium carbonate is added in varying percentages ranging from 0% to 20% to improve the hardness of the tile. Additional tests are then performed to measure water resistance. After being coated with resin, the tiles are waterproof. The entire process, including material selection, composite material fabrication, and mechanical properties testing, usually takes about two months.

– Final exams..

Amit, Karthik and Prasanna Prithviraja, final year students of mechanical engineering who made these special tiles, said that they are doing more tests to sell them commercially. It has been revealed that it will be brought into the market after the final tests.
