Abstract

Rice husk ash (RHA) is very rich in the content of silica (SiO2) or known as silica dioxide. The content of silica (SiO2) in RHA reaches about 90%. This study was to investigate the characteristics of clay tile which was added RHA originating from burning brick. Addition of RHA on clay tile is 0%, 2.5%, 5% and 7.5% by weight of clay. The results of seepage test, all of clay tile obtained no leakage or water droplets at the location in the water soak. The addition of 7.5% RHA resulted in an absorption of up to 18%, and addition of 5% and 2.5% RHA is 14.8% and 14.8% in absorption test. Maximum flexural load was obtained by increasing the RHA by 7.5% which is average of 68.75kg, for the addition of 5% RHA and 2.5% is 65kg and 66.25kg. And clay tile without RHA produces 60kg bending load.
