Abstract

This study finds the chemical composition and the fineness of natural cement at different proportion of raw meal at firing temperature of 800°C for 8 hours. The raw mixture is prepared with limestone (calcium carbonate (CaCO)) and kaolin (Al2O3·2SiO2·2H2O). The ratios of kaolin: limestone are varied from 1:9, 1.5:8.5, 2:8, 2.5:7.5, 3:7 and 4:6. The elements intensities in the samples are determined using x-ray diffraction (XRD) test via EVA software. The elements observed at 2-theta scale are oxides of calcium, silicon, iron, magnesium and aluminum. Reducing the amount of kaolin reduces the intensity of calcium oxide. Iron oxide and silica oxide in combination with other elements intensities increase when amount of kaolin is increased. The magnesium oxide content is also high but comparable with the values from natural cements available. The mixes become finer as more kaolin is added with its specific surface values more than 3000 cm2g-1. The mixes become finer as more kaolin is added with values more than 3000 cm2g-1. Further tests need to be done to determine suitability of kaolin as replacement of limestone in natural cement.
