Composite Cement with a Polymer Addition

Part of the Innovation and Discovery in Russian Science and Engineering book series (IDRSE)


The paper is devoted to the processes of the hardening of composite cements modified with a polymer addition. Fly ash, limestone meal and marble powder have been used as mineral additions to Portland cement to obtain composite cements. Binary systems (“cement-mineral addition”, “cement-organic modifier”) and complex binding systems have been studied. The properties of composite cements have been investigated by means of a triangular surface design. Experimental results on the strength of composite cements are presented.
