Re: Type K cement

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Gail,
 
The use we made of Type K cement was for shrinkage compensation.  This was one of the reasons for laboratory design and testing of the particular mix before we used it.  I was not looking for expansive action, but for, effectively, non-shrink -- this required a blending of Type K with ordinary Type I/II cement and flyash.
