Advantages of Celitement

  • Reduced need in calcium carbonate: molar ratio of calcium to silicon is smaller than 2.
  • Low process temperature.
  • Reduced emission of carbon dioxide from raw materials and fuels.
  • Established process engineeering: unit operations are well known either in cement or aerated concrete manufacturing.
  • Compatible to conventional cementitious binders: miscibility with Ordinary Portland Cement (OPC), known handling and hardening.
  • Homogeneous composition enables easy control of hardening and product quality.
  • Good durability and resistance because of highly connected silicate building units and low porosity.
  • Little efflorescence due to the pure CSH phase.
  • Extremely low heat of hydration combined with high early strength.
