Abstract

This work aimed to study the effect of the dosage of laboratory synthesized Sulfonated Acetone Formaldehyde (SAF) on the physic-mechanical characteristics and durability of SF-SRC cement pastes immersed in 4% MgCl2 or 4% MgSO4 solutions or at elevated temperatures up to 800°C. The compressive strength of thermally treatment cement pastes with 1.5% SAF increases up to 600°C, then decreases up to 800°C. Presence of 2.0% SAF works to produce a compact cementing structure, which decreases the accessibility of the penetration of chloride as well as sulphate ion penetration and enhances the durability, hence the total chloride and sulphate contents diminished.
