Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

- Shows a summary of the theoretical aspects and related manufacturing processes preparation of the main types of construction binders - Shows to testing procedures the properties of binders and composites - Focus on the use of secondary raw materials

Teaching methods



General characteristic of binding agents. Gypsum plasters, magnesium oxychloride cement, quick and hydraulic lime. Hydraulic binders: Portland cement (raw materials, calculations of the raw materials mixture, high- temperature processes of the clinker formation, the mechanism of setting and hardening, properties), aluminous cement, special inorganic cements, phosphate binders with water glass. Application of building binders, concrete, refractory castables.

Compulsory literature:
