Abstract

The properties and hydration of blended cements containing from 8 to 40 % by mass of ceramic waste (CW) from different countries (Argentine and Czech Republic) are investigated. The mini slump, the heat released rate up to 48 h, the pozzolanic activity and the compressive strength at 2, 7 and 28 are determined. Hydration process is characterized by XRD analysis and the pore size refinement is accessed by MIP. Results show that both CWs increase the water demand with increasing the cement replacement level, and they possess pozzolanic activity after 7 days. At early age, the heat released and the compressive strength are lower than that of the Portland cement (PC) for all replacement levels. At 28 days, the pozzolanic reaction significantly improves the compressive strength. From XRD analysis, it is evident that CW reacts to form AFm phases (hemicarboaluminate at 7-28 and later transformed to monocarboaluminate) depending on the replacement level and CW used. CH peak reduction due to the pozzolanic reaction appears at 28 days. The reduction of porosity up to 16-24 % of CW replacement is in accordance with the compressive strength results.
