AB  - The effects of two different mechanically activated kaolins, AKV (61% kaolinite, 14% quartz and 16% mica) and AKG (51.6% kaolinite and 40.6% quartz) on the compressive strength of cement composites and microstructure of pastes were investigated. Composite mixtures, in which 10, 20, 30, 40 and 50% of ordinary Portland cement (OPC) was replaced by AKV or AKG, were prepared with w/b of 0.5, and exposed to different curing conditions (ordinary curing for 28 days and autoclaving). Factors affecting microstructure were investigated on pastes by X-ray diffraction (XRD), Differential thermal analysis/thermal gravimetry (DTA/TG) analyses. Mercury intrusion porosimetry (MIP) and Scanning electron microscopy with Energy-dispersive spectroscopy (SEM-EDS). AKG composites exhibited higher compressive strengths under both curing conditions. Positive autoclaving effects on strengths were predominantly pronounced at the higher cement replacement levels. Comparison of the autoclaved and ordinary cured paste microstructure, revealed more intensive pozzolanic reaction during autoclaving conditions (CH content near zero) and higher total porosity. The negative effect of hydrogarnet on the strength was compensated by the formation of the crystalline tobermorite. Obtained results revealed that mechanically activated kaolin, with high content of quartz, could be a promising pozzolanic addition, even at high cement replacement levels (30-50%), especially when autoclaving curing conditions were applied.

AB  - Kaolin from a Serbian deposit, having a high content of mica and quartz, disordered kaolinite and a high specific surface area, was used to prepare metakaolin (MK). The calcination at temperatures of 700 degrees C or 750 degrees C for 30 to 180 min resulted in MK having high pozzolanic activity, but also significant aglomeration of particles. In order to disperse aglomerates, MK was milled, which resulted in increased pozzolanic activity and reduced particle size. The effects of MK and additionally milled metakaolin (MKmill) on the composite strengths and microstructure of the pastes were compared. We prepared and investigated composites in which ordinary Portland cement (OPC) was replaced with 10% to 50% of MK or MKmill, as well as the representative samples of paste for determination of microstructure. Compressive strengths higher than the control were obtained for composites having up to 30% of MK and up to 40% of MKmill, respectively. Increase of composite strengths with MKmill was more pronounced at lower cement replacement levels (10% and 20%). Compressive strength of composites containing agglomerated MK were satisfactory, which suggests that milling of MK, as well as purification of kaolin, may not be necessary.

AB  - Environmental concerns and sustainable development require increased replacement of cement. Most of previous studies have shown that the compressive strength of cement-based composites is maximized with a 20% content of metakaolin. We investigated composites prepared by replacing ordinary Portland Cement (OPC) with 30 to 50% of metakaolin (MK) and addition of appropriate amount of hydrated lime, which were ordinary cured for 2, 28 or 90 days. Hydration products and microstructure of the pastes were determined by X-ray diffraction (XRD), differential thermal analysis/thermal gravimetry (DTA/TG) and mercury intrusion porosimetry (MIP). MK was produced by calcination of kaolin from a Serbian deposit, which contained a high level of impurities. Replacement of OPC with 30% of MK achieved 28 days compressive strength equivalent to that of the control mix. Higher replacement levels, 40% and 50%, combined with the addition of hydrated lime, achieved satisfactory relative strengths of 94% and 87%, respectively. The positive contribution was particularly pronounced after 90 days for a composite containing 50% of MK. The results clearly showed a possibility of obtaining composites having acceptable compressive strength with reduced cement content in accordance with environmental and sustained development requirements.

AB  - The effects of thermally (MK) or mechanically activated kaolin (AK) on the compressive strength of mortars and microstructure of pastes were investigated. Mortar mixtures, in which 10%, 20% and 30% of ordinary Portland cement (OPC) was replaced by either MK or AK, were prepared (w/b of 0.5) and ordinary (age 2, 28 or 90 days) and autoclave cured. Hydration products were determined by X-ray diffraction (XRD) and differential thermal analysis/thermal gravimetry (DTA/TG) analysis, while microstructure was investigated by mercury intrusion porosimetry (MIP). MK substitution increases the compressive strength of ordinary-cured mortars, as a result of the higher content of reactive silica that caused more pronounced pozzolanic reaction, as well as by effective refinement of their pore structure. Positive effects on the compressive strength could be achieved up to 30% substitution of OPC by MK The OPC substitution by AK resulted in lower strengths of ordinary-cured mortars, compared to both MK mortars and reference. Higher specific surface area and finer particles of AK were insufficient to compensate, through filler effect, lower pozzolanic reaction and additional negative influence of the kaolinite presence. The highest compressive strength was obtained for mortar with 10% of AK (relative strength of 94%). In comparison to the reference, autoclaved MK and AK mortars, exhibited lower compressive strength, as a consequence of increasing the hydrogarnet formation, instead of tobermorite. The highest strength was achieved for mortar with 10% of AK.

AB  - Kaolin from a Serbian deposit, characterized by high content of impurities, such as mica and quartz, disordered kaolinite and high specific surface area, was subjected to thermal and mechanical activation on a large scale. Activations were carried out with a goal to investigate the effects of applied methods on the chemical, structural and morphological changes that occurred in the kaolin, and their influence on the pozzolanic activity. The changes were monitored using XRD, FTIR, TG/DTA, PSD, BET and SEM analyses. Pozzolanic activity was evaluated by determination of the 7-day compressive strength conducted on the lime mortars. The results showed that mechanical activation by milling the kaolin for 20 h in the conventional horizontal ball mill was competitive for obtaining pozzolana as thermal activation. Pozzolanic activity of thermally activated kaolin was mainly influenced by formation of metakaolin. Combined effects (such as significant specific surface area increase, as well as partial kaolinite and complete mica phase amorphization) were dominant in pozzolanic activity of mechanically activated kaolin.
