Abstract – Ceramic Waste insulator is an E-waste (Electrical Waste) where we used this material in our project as coarse aggregate. In Ceramic Industry about 30 % production goes as waste, and in testing 10 % which cannot be recycled. The special thing in this waste is a permanent waste. There is no technology in recycling this waste. Ceramic insulator is a material which are born from clay, quartz, alumina and feldspar and covered with a smooth glaze to shed water. Ceramic materials may be in crystalline ceramics and Non-crystalline ceramics.In our project we made an attempt to find the suitable material to replace of coarse aggregate. And we tried and replaced the ceramic waste insulator as coarse aggregate. We used M30 grade of concrete mix proportion of 1: 1.275: 2.395 for Conventional concrete and 1: 1.275: 2.235 for Ceramic concrete with water cement ratio as 0.45. We replaced the ceramic aggregate in 0%, 25%, 50%, 75%, and 100%.The properties of the aggregates were also compared.
