Building materials, filling materials and binders

Building materials, filling materials and binders

With regard to the measurement methods presented here, we mainly focus on the mineral starting, intermediate and end products in the field of building materials. Powder analysis is the main focus for the starting materials, e.g. particle size analysis. Examples of intermediates are cement slurries, which can be characterized with the DT-1202 spectrometer even undiluted, whereas the cured or aged end products can be analyzed by mercury intrusion porosimetry to determine the pore size distribution. Density and surface determinations can be carried out on both the starting and the final products in order to evaluate changes in parameters as a result of the manufacturing process.
