COMPARATIVE STUDY OF NATURAL ZEOLITES AND OTHER INORGANIC ADMIXTURES IN TERMS OF CHARACTERIZATION AND PROPERTIES OF MORTARS

This paper first deals with a comprehensive characterization of inorganic admixtures such as natural zeolites with different mineralogical compositions, a fly ash, a fine blast furnace slag and a silica fume. Binders, such as ordinary portland cement and quick lime for the substitution of portland cement were also subjected to the characterization. Next, bending and compressive strength and drying shrinkage of the test mortars were measured under the constant flow value. The test results show that natural zeolite is proven to be of sufficient applcability as an admixture for cement.
