Effect of Naphthalene Based Superplasticizers on Performance of Ultrafine White Cement
The compressive strength of ultrafine white cement samples at three ages: 3, 7 and 28 days and micro appearance of hydrates were tested. The influence of the usage of superplasticizers on the compressive strength of ultrafine white cement paste and hydrates were investigated. The results indicated that the 28d compressive strength of ultrafine white cement with 3% naphthalene based superplasticizers added was 92.9 MPa, 22.9% of that of pure ultrafine white cements (75.6 MPa). The addition of superplasticizers was beneficial to the density of white cement paste. A large number of hydrates (AFt, C-H-S, and so on) were generated in the capillary pores, which would improve the structure of capillary pores of hardened cement paste, increase the density and strength.
