Welan gum retards the hydration of calcium sulfoaluminate

Zhang, Yu and Zhang, Zuhua and Li, Weifeng and Wang, Hao and Shen, Xiaodong (2017) Welan gum retards the hydration of calcium sulfoaluminate. Journal of Thermal Analysis and Calorimetry, 130 (2). pp. 899-908. ISSN 1388-6150


Abstract

This paper illustrates the retarding effects of welan gum on the hydration of C4A3$ both in the absence and presence of gypsum. By using the methods of isothermal calorimetry, X-ray diffractometry, mercury instruction porosimetry, thermogravimetry and scanning electron microscopy, it reveals that the hydration of C4A3$ is significantly retarded and reduced in the presence of welan gum, while the total hydration heat of C4A3$ is reduced with the rise of dose of welan gum. The retarding effect of welan gum on the hydration of C4A3$ in the absence of gypsum is much stronger than that in the presence of gypsum. The hydration product of AFm is AFm-12 at curing time longer than 1 d at the w/c ratio of 1. As a whole, welan gum will not affect the composition of hydration products of C4A3$, even though the AFm phase grains grown well and are better shaped with addition of 0.50% welan gum.
