What kind of role do the reactive aluminous has played during early hydration process of metakaolin-cement paste is investigated in present study. Therefore, metakaolin(MK) samples containing 45.94%, 22.86%, 0% reactive aluminous are prepared, respectively. In addition, X-ray Diffraction (XRD) analysis is employed to identify the crystalline phases of all specimens. The amount of acid-insoluble residue (AIR) of all specimens is used to evaluate the unreacted materials. The results obtained indicate that reactive aluminous can promote development of the early period strength significantly. Reactive silica and reactive aluminous reaction velocity was very slow during the first three days, then increased. The reaction velocity of reactive aluminous was faster than reactive silica between the first day and third day, but it shows an opposite result between the third day and seventh day.
