Hydration and Durability of Sulphate-Resisting and Slag Cement Blends in Caron's Lake Water

This investigation studies the hydration characteristics and durability of mixed cement pastes and mortars made from sulphate resisting cement and blast furnace slag cement (BFSC) in Caron's Lake water in Egypt as aggressive medium. The results show that the blending of sulphate resisting cement (SRC) with BFSC improves the durability of SRC. This is mainly due to the decrease of total pore volume, free lime content, total chloride, total sulphate contents and, increase in the resistivity towards sulphate and chloride ions.
