Mangalore tiles were the Inost widely used roofing material throughout India, especially in coastal regions to drain off the heavy rain water. But in recent times the tile industries have been facing problems due to non availability of good clay. The available clay for the manufacture of tile is lacking in desirable properties. Due to this the final roofing tile product has less strength with more weight. In order to improve the properties of the clay, Crumb Rubber Powder (CRP), a waste from tyre industry, has been chosen as an admixture. This paper reports the findings of experimental studies with regard to geotechnical properties (particle size, specific gravity, compaction characteristics, and unconfined compression strength) of both basic clay and stabilized clay, and to evaluate their suitability in tile industlY. Also an investigation was carried OUf to study the effect of cement and lime on CRP stabilized clay. The main objective of the, investigation is to evaluate optimum rubber-cement, rubber- lime proportion for stabilization of the clay ji-um the view point of plasticity and strength characteristics, The results showed that there is an increase in unconfined strength when clay was stabilized w;th CRP
