Abstract

Refractory concretes based on aluminous cements are used with great success in areas where high temperatures are required. The mineralogical composition of the high alumina cement is the main factor which gives the physical and mechanical properties at high temperatures of refractory monolithic materials.

It is therefore desirable to use high alumina cements based on mineralogical compounds with high refractoriness, because in the end those beneficial properties can be found in the final product - refractory concrete.

The aim of this paper is to design, realize and characterize different compositions of high alumina cements based on mineralogical compounds with the highest refractory from the CaO-Al2O3 binary system (i.e. CA, CA2, and CA6), and to find ways of hydraulic activation of calcium hexa aluminate, also.

Keywords: calcium monoaluminate; calcium dialuminate; calcium hexa aluminate; activated hydration; mechanical strength; additive; highly refractory compound
