Cement hydration

Clinker is anhydrous (without water) having come from a hot kiln. Cement powder is also anhydrous if we ignore the small amount of water in any gypsum added at the clinker grinding stage. The reaction with water is termed "hydration". This involves many different reactions, often occurring at the same time.

Gypsum an overview ScienceDirect Topics

Similar to cement-bonded composites, gypsum-bonded composites generally contain a high percentage of gypsum in the product. The gypsum matrix, therefore, participates substantially in the performance of the composite being manufactured. Organic fibers or particles added to gypsum reduce brittleness and improve product toughness.

Quick-setting anhydrite and its manufacture UNITED

In different deposits of anhydrite, the gypsum impurity-will range from 2% to 50% or more, and the gypsum impurity will vary in a single deposi t frompoint to point, a common percentage being 25%. An object of the invention therefore is to provide a method of treating natural- anhydrite so as greatly to shorten its setting time and to permit it to be handled by automatic forming machines.

Frequently asked questions about concrete and cement

Cement comprises from 10 to 15 percent of the concrete mix, by volume. Through a process called hydration, the cement and water harden and bind the aggregates into arocklike mass. This hardening process continues for years meaning that concrete getsstronger as it gets older.
