Specific Examples of Hybrid Alkaline Cement
Department of cement and materials recycling, Eduardo Torroja Institute of construction sciences, (IETcc-CSIC), Madrid, Spain
Hybrid alkaline cements are obtained by alkali-activating cementitious blends in the Na2O-CaO-SiO2-Al2O3-H2O system. The present paper discusses the results of activating different cementitious blends containing a low OPC clinker content (<30%) and a high content of supplementary cementitious materials (such as Fly ash). To obtain useful early mechanical strengths (> 15MPa a 2 days) different alkaline activators were used (liquid and solid). The reaction products obtained were also characterised by XRD, SEM/EDX and 27Al and 29Si NMRMAS. The results showed that the main reaction product was a mix of cementitious gels C-A-S-H and (N,C)-A-S-H, and that their relative proportions were strongly influenced by the calcium content in the initial binder
