Experimental Study on Desulfurized Gypsum Modified Magnesium Oxychloride Cement
The influences of desulfurization gypsum on the properties of both Magnesium oxychloride cement (MOC) pastes and MOC abrasive tools were investigated in this study. By incorporating desulfurization gypsum in the MOC pastes, the compressive strength of MOC paste improved slightly. With 5% gypsum addition, the flexural strength of MOC pastes increased by 36%, the abrasion loss of MOC abrasive tools decreased by 35%, the strength softening coefficient greatly increased. The mechanism maybe due to the microstructure of the MOC pastes became more compact with gypsum adding, the rate of hydrolyzation reaction of MOC phases would be postponed.
