As a new two-dimensional material, MXene (nano-Ti3C2) has been widely applied in many fields, especially for reinforced composite materials. In this paper, mechanical testing, X-ray diffraction (XRD), hydration heat, scanning electron microscope (SEM), and EDS analysis were used to analyze the impact of MXene on cement hydration properties. The obtained results revealed that (a) MXene could greatly improve the early compressive strength of cement paste with 0.04 wt% concentration, (b) the phase type of early-age hydration products has not been changed after the addition of MXene, (c) hydration exothermic rate within 72 h has small difference at different amount of MXene, and (d) morphologies of hydration products were varied with the dosage of MXene, a lot of tufted ettringites appeared in 3 d hydration products when the content of MXene was 0.04 wt%, which will have a positive effect on improving the early mechanical properties of cement paste. MXene has inhibited the Portland cement hydration process; the main role of MXene in the cement hydration process is to promote the messy ettringite becoming regular distribution at a node and form network connection structure in the crystals growth process, making the mechanics performance of cement paste significantly improved. © 2015 Haibin Yin et al.

Propylmethyl cellulose monoester of maleic acid (MAPMC) was synthesized with Propylmethyl cellulose and Maleic anhydride. A modified polyether-type superplastizer (PES) was prepared from ally polyoxyethylenether, Maleic anhydride, acrylic acid and MAPMC through a free radical polymerization. MAPMC and PES were recorded by FTIR. The fluidity of cement paste were investigated, the hydration process of cement for PES were characterized via Hydration Heat Tester. The results indicate that PES superplastizers can improve the fluidity of mortars and more capable of preventing slump loss, the hydroxy group of PES has no negative impact on cement hydration. © (2012) Trans Tech Publications, Switzerland.

A novel compound colloid prevention and distinguishing material by cement-fly ash-sodium silicate ternary synergism was prepared with rapid-hardening sulphoaluminate cement and fly ash as aggregate, sodium silicate as binder and adding suspending agent using one-step mixed method. The scanning electron microscopy, setting time, compressive strength, the hydration mechanism and the inhibitor properties of the material were investigated. The results showed that the initial setting time of extinguishing material could be controlled within 1-30 min and with high early compressive strength. The inhibitor properties of the material were about 90% at 60℃ celsius, about 80% at 70℃ celsius and above 75% at 80℃ celsius. A lot of C-S-H gel in the form of flocculent structures and ettringite were founded, and have a clear shape. The gel covered fly ash, and this gave the paste a wonderful dense texture. The results of industrial experiment showed that the obtained material has good fire prevention and extinguishing effect. ©, 2015, Journal of Functional Materials. All right reserved. Source
