Stabilization of copper refining waste in cement matrix using thermal analysis

  • V. Živica

The objects of the paper are the results of the study on the compatibility of copper refining waste with cement system. The study based on the use of thermal analysis and the comparison of its results with further applied methods (tests of setting, compressive strength and pore analysis) showed good compatibility of the waste up to 20% dose opposite to the cement. It seems that the waste action in cement paste with the Ca(OH)2 binding, produced in the cement process hydration, is connected.
