Standard Guide for Approximation of Optimum SO3 in Hydraulic Cement
|Publication Date:||1 December 2018|
|ICS Code (Cement. Gypsum. Lime. Mortar):||91.100.10|
This guide describes the determination of approximate optimum SO3 for maximum performance as a result of substituting calcium sulfate for a portion of the cement.
This guide refers to the sulfur trioxide (SO3) content of the cement only. Slag cements and occasionally other hydraulic cements can contain sulfide or other forms of sulfur. The determination of SO3 content by rapid methods may include these other forms, and may therefore produce a significant error. If a significant error occurs, analyze the cement for SO3 content using the reference test method of Test Methods C114 for sulfur trioxide.
Values stated as SI units are to be regarded as standard.
