  • Patent number: 8496750
    Abstract: A method for reducing the particle size of a pozzolanic material includes providing a pozzolanic material having an initial particle size and heating the pozzolanic material to cause a portion of the particles to at least partially fracture. Fracturing the particles creates a plurality of fissures that define sub-particles within the particles. The method also includes processing the fractured pozzolanic material to separate the sub-particles, thereby yielding the pozzolanic material having reduced particles.

  • Patent number: 8481116
    Abstract: The invention relates to a method for producing a coated basic material for a hydraulic composition (11) comprising a basic material (14, 16) and water (15). According to the invention, the basic material can consist of several sub-groups (14, 16) and at least one hydraulic binding agent (14) and to produce the hydraulic composition the basic material (14, 16) and the water (15) are mixed in a mixer (8). Prior to the mixing of the hydraulic composition, the basic material (14, 16) is at least partially coated with an additive (13). The invention also relates to a coated basic material to be used in concrete production, to an additive for concrete production and to a method for producing a hydraulic composition.

  • Patent number: 8404041
    Abstract: A method of controlling release of an admixture in a cement-based composition involves intercalating an admixture (e.g. an accelerator, a set retarder, a superplasticizer) for the cement-based composition into a layered double hydroxide or mixture thereof. A cement-based composition prepared in such a manner and containing a cement-based material (e.g. cement, mortar or concrete) has better workability, especially in respect of slump-loss characteristics.
