Application Note: Cement Analysis by the Pressed Powder Method on Benchtop WDXRF Supermini200 According to ASTM C114-11
6 November 2012

Cement is one of the most important materials for construction. Many kinds of hydraulic cements, including Portland cement, with various physical properties are produced by changing the composition of clinker minerals. It is therefore important to control the chemical composition of cement products and interim products. This application note demonstrates quantitative analysis for Portland cement by the pressed powder method according to ASTM C114-11 on Rigaku Supermini200, a benchtop sequential wavelength dispersive X-ray fluorescence spectrometer.
