Meeting 2017 TMS Annual Meeting & Exhibition
Symposium Pan American Materials Congress: Materials for Infrastructure
Presentation Title PAN-26: Carbonation Study in Calcium Aluminate Cement Pastes
Author(s) Jose Manuel Vanegas, Henry Alonso Colorado, John F. Zapata
On-Site Speaker (Planned) Jose Manuel Vanegas
Abstract Scope Carbonation reduces durability and stability of cements and concrete. Particularly in calcium aluminate cement absorption can be more acetated than in traditional cements and therefore this is a technical and open problem in this materials. On the other hand, carbonation can be used as a way to reduce the CO2 levels from the atmosphere by the absorption in solid materials. In this research different formulations of calcium aluminate cements (CAC) have been exposed to CO2 gas. Samples of cement paste were made at 0.3, 0.4 and 0.5 water to cement (W/C) ratios. Carbonation was carried out on samples in controlled environment under CO2 gas. All samples were characterized in their microstructure by scanning electron microscopy, X-ray diffraction, granulometry, density, and compression tests.
