Alkali-resistant mineral fibres - a review / S.S.B. Wang. : M38-13/83-8E-PDF

"This literature review presents background information outlining the function of mineral fibres in cement and concrete mixes. Asbestos fibres are currently used because of their alkali-resistant properties. Newly developed alkali-resistant man-made mineral fibres (MMMF) have been developed as possible substitutes. Problems relative to such fibres are noted along with the desirability of researching alternate fibre-forming mineral materials, e.g., asbestos tailings and diopside. The various types and grades of mineral wool and typical raw mineral materials are identified and reviewed as are the major mineral wool-forming processes, furnaces and fiberization methods. Glass fibre properties and fundamental considerations of the nature of glass and glass fibre are then reviewed following which the mechanics of chemical attack on glasses in aqueous solutions is considered. Finally, alkali-resistant fibres are reviewed and alkali-resistant evaluation tests described"--Abstract, page i.
