Abstract: The different pH values in CaO-SiO2-H2O systems were taken into account to prepare xonotlite whiskers without any surfactant, special instruments and synthesis conditions. Effect of pH values in system on the crystallinity and morphology of synthesized xonotlite whiskers was studied by using XRD and SEM techniques. The results indicated that the different pH values in system had little effect on the crystallinity of synthesized xonotlite, but posed significant impact on the morphology of xonotlite whiskers. The higher pH value is, the lager scale xonotlite whiskers appear. Little whiskers were synthesized in the system of pH 11.5, but in the system of pH 13.0, the formation of xonotlite whiskers was promoted and xonotlite whiskers with 20-40 μm in length and 400 nm in diameter were prepared at 225 °C for 15 h.

Abstract: The ultra-light calcium silicate material was reinforced with the method of xonotlite whisker in-situ growth via hydrothermal synthesis. Effects of different ratios of silica sources on microstructure and mechanical properties of the reinforcement were studied in this paper. The results indicated that the ratios of silica sources posed great impacts on microstructure and mechanical properties of the reinforcement. The reinforcement with density of 118 Kg•m-3, flexural strength of 0.42 MPa and compressive strength of 0.66 MPa was successfully prepared under the condition of K2SiO3:H2SiO3 (mol) =2:1.

Abstract: The ultra-light calcium silicate material was reinforced with the method of xonotlite whisker in-situ growth via hydrothermal synthesis. Effects of different hydrothermal temperatures and reaction times on the microstructure and physical properties of the reinforcement were studied in this paper. The results indicated that the hydrothermal temperatures and times posed great impacts on microstructure of the reinforcement. The increase of hydrothermal temperature and time was beneficial to the growth of xonotlite crystal. The effect of buffer and transfer action of the xonotlite whiskers was the key to reinforcing the ultra-light calcium silicate material.
