Properties of Silicon Slag in Cement Mortar

Aline Heloá de Souza, Regina P. da Silva, and Gladis Camarini

Abstract—The building construction is considered one of the largest consumers of natural raw materials and the production of iron generates about 0.75 t of slag per ton of pig iron produced. It is known that the natural resources are finite and the Brazilian National Policy on Solid Waste, becomes mandatory to give a destination for solid waste than to dispose them in landfill sites. This research was proposed to study the use of silicon slag to replace natural sand in mortars. The mortars were produced with 0%, 25%, 50%, 75% and 100% of replacement of the natural sand to silicon slag, by mass. The tests were consistency, compressive and flexural strength, capillary water absorption, and air permeability. The mortars with silicon slag had good results and showed that it can replace natural sand in mortars.

Index Terms—Mortar, recycling, silicon slag, waste.
