Experimental Study on Alkali Stimulating-Steel Slag Cementitious Materials
In order to utilize the waste steel slag effectively, three kinds of alkaline activator such as Na2SO4, Na2SiO3, Na2CO3 were used to prepare steel slag cementitious material and measure its strength of 28 days and 60 days in the standard wet conditions. Microcosmic structure form of hydration products of cementitious material was analyzed by the test of SEM. The results indicate that: three activators on the strength of steel slag all have certain stimulation effect, and Na2SO4 has the apparent stimulation effect on the strength of steel slag, the analysis and test of SEM also shows that hydration products structure form of steel slag cementitious material added with Na2SO4 is much more than other two activators and is more helpful to improve steel slag strength.
