Application Note: Cement Analysis by the Pressed Powder Method on the ZSX Primus III+ According to ASTM C114-11
28 December 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 pellet method according to ASTM C114-11 on Rigaku ZSX PrimusIII+, a sequential wavelength dispersive XRF spectrometer.
