Why kaolinitic clays?

Clay minerals from the kaolinite group, when properly activated, are among the most reactive SCMs known to man. Its abundance, low activation temperature and large thermal activation window in comparison to other clay minerals are advantageous factors for its processing at industrial scale. As an excellent source of reactive alumina, they could be used in […]
