The Impact of Lithium Polysilicate on the Microstructure of Sand-Lime Products
The general attributes of calcium silicate products have been investigated in several studies. In this paper, we propose to use a specific modifier i.e. lithium polysilicate solution in order to examine and improve compressive strength of sand-lime bricks. The research was examined by scanning electron microscope (SEM). The main objective was to determine the phase composition in the structure of the sand-lime products.
