Abstract
In this paper we describe a study of the durability of calcium aluminate cement (CAC) reinforced with nano- and micro- cellulose fibers. The nanocelluloses were in the form of nanofibrillated cellulose -obtained from sisal pulp by the application of a high intensity refining process- or as nanocrystals –obtained from acid hydrolysis of pure microcellulose. The setting time (Vicat), strength development (flexural strength), and durability to aging (wet/dry cycles and scanning electron microscop...
