Chloride in cement Advances in Cement Research

2015-3-2  The role of chloride in cement has had a mixed history. On the one hand, chloride has long been used to accelerate cement hydration and strength gain. On the other, chloride deprives embedded steel of the corrosion protection normally developed in chloride-free cement environments.

Analysis of total chloride content in concrete -

2015-12-1  Hence, the total chloride in concrete can be expressed by the following general equation: (1) cl tm = cl c + w c (cl w) × 10 − 4 + 1 c (ca × cl ca + fa × cl fa) + 1 c [∑ i = 1 n ad i × cl i] where cl tm is the maximum total chloride content in concrete in percentage by weight of cement, cl c is the cement chloride content in percentage by weight of cement, w c is the water–cement ratio, cl w is the chloride content

2009-12-1  With reference to critical chloride content, also standards and regulations are occasionally cited, as they often present limits on the tolerable chloride content in concrete, for instance the European standard EN 206-1 that restricts the chloride content to 0.2 0.4% chloride by mass of binder for reinforced concrete and 0.1 0.2% for prestressed concrete . These limits, however, are not proper

Chloride in concrete (BS 8500)

Chloride in concrete (BS 8500) BS 8500 Concrete – Complementary British Standard to BS EN 206 requires that concrete should have a maximum chloride ion content by mass of cement depending on certain criteria. This is expressed as a chloride class e.g. Cl 0,40 The use of a comma , instead of a full stop . is how it is expressed in the main Standard BS EN 206.
