Kaoline from two different deposits was tested: kaoline I from Rudnik (LB Minerals Company, Slovakia) and kaoline II from Tomasovce (Kerko Company, Slovakia).
The mixtures were prepared by replacing a part (5-50%) of fly ash with ground slag (GS), kaoline I (KI), kaoline II (KII), metakaoline I (MKI), metakaoline II (MKII), bolus (B) and calcined bolus (CB) at the BM/AS ratio = 2.84 g/ml, [M.sub.s] = 1.25, [Na.sub.2]O/BMx100 = 8 wt%, the content of water 30 %, and at the curing temperature = 80[degrees]C (6 hours).
A monomer/kaoline mixture solution was prepared by mixing kaoline ultrafine powder (3.156 g) in the monomer solution mentioned earlier.
Using partly neutralized acrylic acid as monomer, kaoline ultrafine powder as filler, N,N'-(dimethyl)acrylamide as crosslink agent, and potassium persulfate as initiator agent, poly(sodium acrylate)/kaoline superabsorbent composite was synthesized by aqueous solution polymerization method.
Regoliths formed during the remaining time intervals are relatively thin and show incomplete profiles where, instead of kaolines, mixed-layer clay minerals were developed.
