Influences of Microelement on Microstructure and Mechanical Performance of Alite-Strontium Calcium Sulphoaluminate Cement
Alite-strontium calcium sulphoaluminate cement, a new type of cementitious material, is synthesized by combining strontium calcium sulphoaluminate with minerals of Portland cement clinker. The influences of excessive SO3 and SrO on the microstructure and performances of this cement are studied by XRD, SEM-EDS and lithofacies. The results show that the optimal excessive mass fraction of SO3 and SrO are 50% and 80%. The compressive strength of the cement prepared under the testing conditions reaches to 32.8MPa, 66.8MPa and 126.4MPa at 1d, 3d and 28d curing ages, respectively. The additions of SO3 and SrO are benefit to improve the content of strontium calcium sulphoaluminate, and promote the formation of alite at low sintering temperature.
