This research aims to investigate the influence of cement type to carbonation. For this purpose mixtures of four different cement mortars and eight different concretes that have been prepared with four different cements were left exposed for one year in open air in northern Greece. Results indicate that the type of cement influences the carbonation rate. Concrete mixtures produced according to the definitions of EN 206 standard perform lower service life against carbonation induced corrosion if the choice of the cement type is not carefully examined.
