calcium aluminate cement

Also found in: Dictionary.

calcium aluminate cement, aluminous cement, (Brit.) high-alumina cement

The product obtained by pulverizing clinker, consisting essentially of hydraulic calcium aluminates resulting from fusing or sintering a suitably proportioned mixture of aluminous and calcareous materials.

The replacement series of cement SRMs reflects newer cement types now being used; ordinary and blended portland cement products from around the world were selected, including blends with limestone, slag, and fly ash, low Fe white cement, and two calcium aluminate cements. These materials are certified for more components that cover a wider range of elemental composition than any prior series.
