Use Of Calcium Carbonate In Cement Making

The role of calcium carbonate in cement hydration

The role of calcium carbonate in cement hydration

Apr 01, 2007 It is also noteworthy that adding carbonate in the form of calcium carbonate to cement slightly reduces its buffering capacity towards subsequent carbonation, for example in atmospheric carbonation. If protection of embedded steel is important, it is desirable that improvements in cement performance, for example reduced permeability arising from calcite addition, should outweigh the loss
