Understanding the carbonation of concrete with ...

2020-10-22  The carbonation resistance of a cement paste or a concrete—which is usually expressed in terms of the depth to which atmospheric CO 2 has penetrated the material at a given time, or as a coefficient describing this rate of ingress—depends not only on its CO 2 binding capacity, but also on its porosity and pore size distribution [ 16, 21, 44 ].

2016-8-1  Carbonation of cement paste can be an active or a passive process, with different effects. In order to understand the passive and (possible) active effects of carbonation on cement paste, it is important to understand the way that CO 2 reacts with main phases in the cement paste and the factors which influence this process.

CarbonCure Technical Note - Types of Concrete

2015-10-28  Weathering carbonation, or atmospheric carbonation, occurs in concrete when calcium compounds react with carbon dioxide (CO2) from the atmosphere and water (H2O) in the concrete pores. First, the CO2 reacts with the water in the pores to form carbonic acid (H2CO3). The carbonic acid then reacts with the calcium compounds contained within the hydration products that are present in mature concrete, mainly calcium hydroxide (typically 25 – 50 % by weight of the cement

Carbonation of concrete

Carbonation is a slow and continuous process that progresses from the outer surface moving inwards. Over the lifecycle of concrete, carbonation will result in the reabsorption of around a third of the CO2 emitted when making cement, significantly reducing the whole-life CO2 footprint of both the cement and the concrete for which it is used.

Carbonation of concrete

Carbonation of concrete. Carbonation is the reaction of carbon dioxide in the environment with the calcium hydroxide in the cement paste. This reaction produces calcium carbonate and lowers the pH to around 9. At this value the protective oxide layer surrounding the reinforcing steel breaks down and corrosion becomes possible.
