Characterising cement-superplasticiser interaction using zeta potential measurements
MetadataShow full item record
The zeta potential generated at the interface between cement particle surfaces adsorbed with superplasticisers have been studied using electroacoustic technique, which is capable of measuring zeta potential at high concentrated suspensions. The study has been undertaken to examine the differences in the magnitude of the zeta potential for ordinary Portland cement (OPC) and Portland pozzolanic (fly ash) cement (PPC) pastes along with the differential impacts of different types of superplasticisers on both the varieties of cement pastes. In the latter context, the effects of three different types of superplasticisers namely Ligno Sulphonate (LS), Sulphonated Melamine Formaldehyde (SMF) and Sulphonated Naphthalene Formaldehyde (SNF) have been specifically studied. The results show that the cement pastes with PPC shows better dispersion when compared with the OPC. The paper also endeavors to unfold the relationship and significance of cement interaction with three different superplasticisers. © 2010 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
