Influence of Different Sintering System on the Formation of Tricalcium Aluminate
Several different sintering systems about the formation of C3A ,by mixing CaO and Al2O3 powder, are studied in this experiment. The sample is characterized by glycerol ethanol method, X-ray powder diffraction and TG-DTA. The experimental results show that: reducing the react time cannot boost the formation of C3A, but traditionally electrical heating combined microwave heating can romote the formation of C3A rapidly .In terms of phase equilibria of CaO-Al2O3 system, pure C3A cann’t be synthesized by sintering . Except the samples also contain minor amounts of CA and C12A7.
