Abstract
This study was performed to study the effects of the cement paste composition (calcium aluminate cement—CAC and a geopolymer in comparison to Portland cement—OPC) on bamboo pulp and nanofibrillated cellulose (NFC). The changes in the composition and chemical structure of the fibers were analyzed by X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) and Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR). The changes in the mechanical strength were evaluated through tensile tests on the fibers after immersion...
