Abstract: Due to Modernization and urbanization constructing industries are fast growing also it leading to high demand of constructing materials because of expensive prices, and for the construction industry, usage of steel is currently limited heavily Many studies have been carried out to identify highly available, low cost innovative material to use in construction industry as a solution to meet the ever increasing demand for raw material. Bamboo was used as a construction material as a coarse aggregate, steel reinforcement. Bamboo has a higher compressive strength than wood, brick, or concrete and a tensile strength that rivals steel. water absorption in bamboo was the main problem used for construction .because The durability of the concrete is largely affected by absorption of water. Also poly ethylene bags are widely used in the country and its disposal after use causes more problems ,Mismanaged waste of polyethylene bags is the current threatening to the environment this waste is largely availbe its abundant high resistance to insects, fungi, animals, as well as molds, mildew, rot and many chemicals. In this study cubic bamboo was used as a coarse aggregate and it was coated with the waste LDPE bag melt ,as one of the coating material and other one is neem oil.and it was investigated to find the water absorption and turbidity, antifungal activity and compressive strength some other parameters in bamboo material with coatings it was observed that compared to untreated bamboo the polyethylenene coated bamboo material shows reduction in water absorption level and turbity.
