Alongterm study of MgO hydration in cement pastes
The effect of various additives on the longterm hydration of Magnesium Oxide, (MgO) in cement pastes cured in water at 18±2°C up to 12 years was studied by X-ray diffraction (XRD), seanning electron microscopy (SEM) and EPMA. It was found that cement with high MgO content, is stabilized even after a longterm period of hydration by active pozzolans.
