The paper investigates the influence of fine-grained components on the synthesis of new formations and structure of cellular concrete. Grain size composition was defined with the aid of a laser diffraction analyzer of particles ANALYSETTE 22 NanoTecplus. The composition of the obtained hydrated phases was studied using electron microscopy and X-ray phase analysis. The introduction of silica and aluminosilicate components with the specific surface area >350 m2/kg enabled to directly influence the mechanism of the hydrated phases formation. Complex hydrated calcium aluminosilicates of the frame structure of zeolite type and non-permanent composition were identified in the hydration products. The formation of the total set of properties is attributed to the morphological features of the hydrated phases, the nature of connections between the crystalline hydrates, and their location in the material structure. X-ray phase analysis showed that ultra-micro-dispersed components have the stimulating impact on the processes of silicate formation. With the increase in the amount of hydrated new formations and decrease in the liquid phase volume the conditions for building of strong crystal intergrowth contacts were created.
