Development of Low-Cost Roofing from Indigenous Materials in Developing Nations
MetadataShow full item record
This report covers Phase II (May 1974 through September 1975) of a 3-1/2 year research effort to match indigenous fibers and fillers with low cost binders to produce improved roofing for developing countries. The ultimate goal of the program is to make available, in at least three countries, one each in Latin America, Asia, and Africa, an economically and technically acceptable roofing system requiring less foreign exchange than existing alternatives.
