A Review on Use of Metakaolin in Cement Mortar and Concrete

Concrete mixes are made by 0, 5, 10 and 15% metakaolin replacement with cement was made and are exposed to normal and steam curing at 550c and found that 10% metakaolin usage was optimum for normal curing and 15% MK replacement of cement produced concrete showed higher pore volume results in high waster absorption are applicable in binder

Effect of Soorh Metakaolin on Concrete Compressive

Concrete durability is a key aspect for forecasting the expected life time of concrete structures. In this paper, the effect of compressive strength and durability of concrete containing metakaolin developed from a local natural material (Soorh of Thatta Distict of Sindh, Pakistan) is investigated. Soorh is calcined by an electric furnace at 8000C for 2 hours to produce metakaolin.

A Critical Review on the Properties and Applications of

The incessant demand for concrete is predicted to increase due to the fast construction developments worldwide. This demand requires a huge volume of cement production that could cause an ecological issue such as increasing the rates of CO 2 emissions in the atmosphere. This motivated several scholars to search for various alternatives for cement and one of such alternatives is called sulfur

Suitability of metakaolin-based geopolymers for underwater

The development and use of geopolymers (GPs) considerably increased in the construction industry. This paper assesses the suitability of metakaolin-based GP mortar and concrete mixtures for underwater applications, including the performance comparison to cementitious (CEM)-based materials. Results showed that the flow times and rheological properties of GP mixtures are

This paper presents a study related to the application of geopolymers cements as a binder on production of mortars for construction and building materials. Geopolymeric cements were produced from metakaolin, clay brick waste and activator consisting of potassium hydroxide and potassium silicate. The mixtures were prepared using standard production processes according Brazilian standards.

Fibre reinforced concrete can keep on resisting much amount of loads even at deflection. The characteristics and behaviour of fibre reinforced concrete depends on matrix properties such as material, fibre concentration, fibre geometry, fibre orientation, fibre distribution [1]. The new additives flyash and fibres which is practised in recent times was found to be satisfactory.

A hard sell? Metakaolin in high-performance concrete - IndMin

Adding metakaolin to cement can improve the strength, corrosion resistance and appearance of concrete, but as Frank Hart* explains, the construction industry is yet to be fully won over by its performance benefits. Metakaolin is an amorphous, alumino-silicate mineral, manufactured by calcining kaolin at temperatures between 650°C and 850°C.
