Raw materials: calcined alumina (CA, E-sy 1000, Almatis, USA), hydratable alumina (HA, Alphabond 300, Almatis, USA), dispersant (diammonium citrate, [C.sub.6][H.sub.14][N.sub.2][O.sub.7], DAC, Synth, Brazil, 0.30 wt.% dry-basis), and distilled water (from 5 vol.% up to 80 vol.%) (Table 1).
Such behaviors are typical from cast systems containing hydraulic binders such as hydratable alumina [6, 7, 10, 29].
In these suspensions, the excess of water reduced the binding effect of hydratable alumina and favored particle sedimentation during the curing step (Figure 5(c)).
Some types of groins, such as magnesium oxide, are themselves hydratable. The amount of hydrate varies by sizing, relative humidity and the presence of any other bond hydrates they may be mixed with.
Alumina is a hydratable material and reduced alumina gives reduced hydration to produce less heat of hydration.
Sericite does not belong to the clay minerals in the narrow sense, but it is a hydratable layered silicate with a certain layer charge, especially after activation and structure transformation.
