From the journal


As an essential preliminary to understand the hydration of wood-cement composites, the effects of some additives on the delayed setting due to wood of an Ordinary Portland Cement have been investigated by isothermal calorimetry. With the addition of calcium chloride and activated charcoal, an increase of 50% of the total enthalpy is observed in wood-cement composites hydration, because calcium chloride mostly influences aluminate phases and activated charcoal silicate phases.
