Drying and hydration of cement based self-leveling flooring compounds

Anderberg, Anders LU and Wadsö, Lars LU (2007) In Drying Technology vol 25(no 12). p.1995-2003
Abstract
Water in building materials not only influences important physical properties and chemical processes but is also related to the well-being of the occupants of a building. The drying of cementitious materials is complex, involving several different drying processes. The conditions for each drying process change as the material changes its properties as it goes from a particle suspension in the fresh state to a fine porous material in the hardened state. The present article describes and quantifies the drying processes of cement-based self-leveling flooring compounds (SLCs) and relates them to the extent of reaction, which here is quantified by isothermal calorimetry. The relative importance of the different drying processes is discussed and... (More)
