Glass Fiber Concrete Additive: Alkali-Resistant Glass Fiber-Reinforced Concrete


By nature, concrete exhibits low tensile strength, brittleness, unstable crack propagation, low breaking strength, and inadequate ductility. These shortcomings are generally eliminated through conventional reinforcement or pre-strain applications in reinforced concrete structures without having improvement in the properties specific to concrete. Alternatively, it was found that strength and ductility of concrete are increased by including […]

How Does Calcium Aluminate Cement Age?


Calcium aluminate cements differ from Portland cements (OPC) in terms of both mineralogical and physical characteristics. The raw materials for Portland cement are primarily sourced from clay and limestone, so the primary oxides are CaO and SiO2. Calcium aluminate cement, on the other hand, is rich in alumina because the source of the raw material […]
