Paper Title:
Activation of Slag Cement by Hydrated Lime
  Abstract

In this experimental study, the setting agent Ca(OH)2 used for activation of slag cement is used in the proportions of 0%, 2%, 4%, 6%, 8% and 10% by substitution method by mass of slag cement. The results indicated that the mineral activator has a significant effect on the flexural and compressive strengths. The optimum percentage of the mineral activator (hydrated lime) ranges between 2 to 4%. The activation of the slag cement by fine lime (calcium hydroxide) is a simple and economic method especially for cement containing not very reactive slag or low reactivity due to its low CaO/SiO2.
