Strӓtlingite: Compatibility with Sulfate and Carbonate Cement Phases
The silicate AFm, strӓtlingite, has been shown to be stable in high aluminosilicate cement systems but its stability with respect to the anion content of hydrated Portland cement paste is unknown. The stability of strӓtlingite in the presence of sulfate and carbonate phases relevant to cement systems are reported. Results show that strӓtlingite persists at the sulfate activity conditioned by gypsum, ettringite and at carbonate activity conditioned by the presence of calcite, carbonate AFm, or carbonate AFt. Structural incorporation of anions such as carbonate or sulfate in strӓtlingite was not observed in the temperature range 20-85 °C.
