The kinetics of alkali activation of slag is highly dependent on the activator type and its chemical constitution. This paper explores the early-age reaction kinetics of slag activated using powder sodium silicate (which makes handling easier in practice) and compares it with that of waterglass (liquid sodium silicate) activated slag pastes. The influence of Na2O-to-slag ratio and the activator modulus (SiO2-to-Na2O ratio) on the isothermal calorimetric response is presented. The powder sodium… CONTINUE READING
