Application of Fiber Produced by Plasma Spray Method in Cementitious Complex Binder
The effect of microfiber produced from recycled waste catalyst on microstructure and mechanical strength of cementitious complex binder was analysed. Complex binder reinforced with 1%, 3% and 5% fibers were exposed to 600, 800 and 1000°C for 3h. The influence of annealing temperature on morphology of fiber reinforced complex binder was analyzed applying SEM, XRD techniques. Experimental results showed that reinforcement with 1% of fiber had advantage on mechanical strength of complex binder up to 800°C. Meanwhile addition of 5% of fiber resulted in lowest values of strength and reduced bulk density of complex binder in all firing temperature range.
