Activation of blended cement by amine additives

In order to reduce CO2 emissions coming from cement production, manufacturers are increasingly making use of supplementary cementitious materials (SCMs). However, the use of SCMs such as slag, fly ash or limestone usually leads to a decrease of cement strength performances, especially at early age. The addition of an efficient activator can allow to compensate this loss of performances. Different molecules and salts can be used […]
