Myers, D., & Gartner, E. M. (1992). IPC No. U.S.Strength enhancing additive for certain portland cements (Patent No. 5084103.)


This invention relates to a method of producing enhanced strength portland cements. Under the process of this invention, certain portland cements, in particular those containing at least 4% C.sub.4 AF and up to 0.2% of a strength enhancing additive comprising triisopropanolamine, exhibit a marked increase in 7 and 28 day compressive strength. The triisopropanolamine strength enhancing additive may be admixed with cement powder or may be interground as a grinding aid with cement clinker during finish milling.
