Role of dispersant and humidity on the setting of millimetric films of aluminous cement prepared by tape casting

Abstract : An aluminous cement (Secar 71 from Lafarge) has been used for preparing millimetre thick films by tape casting. Slurry preparation is described. The effect of several dispersants has been studied. The optimum dispersion, associated with the minimum viscosity, is obtained with minimal amounts of dispersant in the case of acetic and propionic acids. Indeed, the corresponding quantities of dispersant are less than 0.5% by weight relative to cement. In addition to its dispersive role, acetic acid plays a role in the setting. It has a retarding effect below 1% by weight relative to the mass of cement and from this amount, it plays an accelerating role on setting. Tapes prepared with cement, water, acetic acid, PEG 300 have been left to set in different environments at 20 °C (50% or 95% relative humidity, water). The formation of aluminous calcium hydrates is most important when setting is done in water. Lastly, the advantage of setting in water is also discussed with respect to the elimination of the different organic products that have been used for tape casting
