Is the basic ground clincker calcium sulpho aluminate – a mix of pure bauxite,limestone and calcium sulphate.Burned in a rotary kiln it in itself gives after grinding a slow reacting cement.It will however react rapidly in the presence of lime and calcium-sulphate to form ettringite.Thus giving expansion or shrinkage compensation to the cement matrix depending on the amount added. It is used as an additive to give;
