The main reason and principle to study this research work to find the amount of light which can able to pass through the resin concrete block, which help the building from artificial energy consumption and maximum use of natural sunlight during day time, it is done by the help of Lux meter, and noticed that lumen of light increases as resin strip percentage increases. This resin translucent block is formed by cement, river sand and resin which is casted in strips and inserted into the block during casting. The size of the block carried out for experimental work is 150 mm x150 mm x 150 mm as per IS code 2185.1:2005. In this resin translucent concrete block other experiment like compressive strength is also conducted and noticed that by increasing the percentage of resin strips (0.6%, 1.2%, and 1.8%), compressive strength also increases with respect to control specimen. Ultrasonic pulse velocity test is also conducted and noticed that concrete quality grading is medium by using different percentage of resin strips (0.6%, 1.2%, and 1.8%) as per IS code 13311.1.1992 as compared to control specimen. Water permeability test is also conducted and noticed that the by using different percentage of resin strips (0.6%, 1.2%, and 1.8%) is poor with compared to control specimen having 0% resin strips. Therefore it can be that this block can be used for green building where light consumption can takes place and also used for load bearing wall in construction industry.
