Analysis Reaction Kinetics in Cement, Mortar and Concrete

To understand phenomena like alkali-silica reactions (ASR), alkali-carbonate reactions (ACR) and alkali-aggregate reactions (AAR), it is important to investigation reaction kinetics in cement, mortar and concrete.

Microscopy or SEM-EDS is usually used to study these reactions through cross-sectional mapping of samples. However, results from these are slow, dependent on the user, and have insufficient lower limits of detection.

Malvern Panalyticals most recent HiPer Small Spot Mapping (HiPer SSM) addition on the Zetium platform offers fast and accurate results that are user-independent. Here, the HiPer SSM is demonstrably quick in mapping mortar samples and, as such, enables extensive reaction studies using multiple samples.
