Cement Superplasticizer Compatibility

Cement superplasticizer interaction in concrete is a complex blend of chemical and physical mechanisms that are interdependent. The complicated nature of the problem prevents the development of simple solutions to address the field related issues of application of superplasticizers.

Performance analysis of magnesium phosphate cement

Cylindrical specimens of magnesium phosphate cement were molded and varying amounts (0 to 30% weight) of grinding dust were added to the ceramic matrices. The influence of the addition of grinding dust on the characteristics of the mortars in terms of microstructure (SEM), mechanical strength and capillary water absorption was verified.

Lecture 2. Portland cement

Cement is the hydraulic binder (hydraulic = hardening when combined with water) which is used to produce concrete. Cement paste (cement mixed with water) sets and hardens by hydration, both in air and under water. The main base materials for Portland cement, are limestone, marl and clay, which are mixed in defined proportions. This raw

3.3 Raw Materials for Cement Manufacture

The first step in the manufacture of portland cement is to combine a variety of raw ingredients so that the resulting cement will have the desired chemical composition. These ingredients are ground into small particles to make them more reactive, blended together, and then the resulting raw mix is fed into a cement kiln which heats them to extremely high temperatures.

In this study, the same batch of Portland cement clinker and gypsum was used as the main components of the cement samples reported in Table 1, and TEA and TIPA were used as grinding aids. Besides, boric acid (BA) and anhydrous borax (AHB) were used as boron compounds, and their effects on the performance of the grinding aids were researched.
