The synthesis of alkali activated slag cement using iron blast furnace slag becomes an important measurement for energy conversation and environment protection. Alkali activated slag cements differ from ordinary Portland cement through the use of an alkali-activated iron blast furnace slag with limestone and kaolin blends to give high compressive strength, long-term performance, improved durability characteristics and lower maintenance costs.
1. Better concrete workability.
2. Easier finishability.
3. Higher compressive and flexural strength.
4. Lower permeability.
5. Improved resistance to aggressive chemicals.
6. More consistent plastic and hardened properties.
7. Lighter color.
1. Low energy consumption.
2. Low CO2 emission.
3. Potential to reach high mechanical strength at early ages of curing.
4. High stability in aggressive environments.
5. Resistance to elevated temperatures.
1. Alternative, low cost and green in making interlocking bricks system.
2. Using waste in the making of bricks.
3. Turns waste into wealth.
The production of alkali activated slag cements associated with low energy consumption and low CO2 emission, along with the potential to reach high mechanical strength at early ages of curing, high stability in aggressive environments and resistance to elevated temperatures. These properties have made alkali activated slag cements is a very interesting alternative from both scientific and commercial points of view.
