Ternary blends

Abstract : Ternary binders have become used more frequently for several reasons. In some cases, such as combining a rapidly reactive SCM such as silica fume with a more slowly reactive SCM such as fly ash or slag, the use of ternary binders can provide benefits for both early-age and later-age properties and durability of concrete. In other cases, high-alkali pozzolans have been combined with slag to both accelerate the slag hydration and bind the alkalis from the pozzolan. As well, two SCMs may be combined to improve economy of the concrete mixture. This chapter describes properties of various ternary binders. © RILEM 2018.
