The paper describes the proposal of modification of sand-lime masonry elements with selected polymers in the form of regranulate and regrind. Such modification has two beneficial effects. Firstly, silicate products with mentioned additives are characterized by better functional properties, i.a. compressive strength, bulk density and water absorption. On the other hand, it gives the new opportunities for waste management and brings environmentally friendly and durable construction material. The results of research performed on the modified sand-lime products are presented and compared with the properties of the traditional silicate elements. The impact of introduced polymers on the microstructure and elemental structure of resulting products is briefly featured.

Keywords: sand-lime products; recycled polymers; waste managemen; environmentally friendly materials.
