The acid resistance of 60-day cured alkali-activated slag (AAS) mortars, in comparison with Portland cement, is assessed. Specimens are exposed to hydrochloric, nitric and sulphuric acids at pH 3.0, and acetic acid (CH3COOH) at pH 4.5, for 150 days, with specimens also immersed in water as a control. Negligible changes in compressive strength are identified in Portland cement and AAS binders during exposure to mineral acids, while compressive strength increases during immersion in water… CONTINUE READING
