Abstract

The progression of the setting reaction of a TTCP-DCPD rapid setting cement was investigated as a function of time. Compressive strength and extent of conversion to HA were obtained at different incubation times. The results indicated a rapid development of both strength and HA conversion in the early stages of the reaction, which slowed down after 4 h, presumably as a result of HA formation on the surface of the reactants. This hypothesis was supported by scanning electron microscopy examination of cement fracture surfaces.
