Abstract
Chemically Bonded Phosphate Ceramics (CBPCs) and, in particular, Magnesium Phosphate Cements (MPCs), show properties very adequate for using as repair mortar for concrete constructions. The obtainment of MPC using MgO-containing by-products as raw materials was proposed by the authors in previous works. There, formulations including boric acid as additive were optimized to obtain good mechanical properties and proper setting times. The current study aims to analyze the viability of the developed...
