The rate of hydration depends on the composition of the ferrite phase; that containing higher amounts of Fe exhibits lower rates of hydration. The reaction of C4AF with gypsum proceeds as follows:[24] 3C4AF + 12CSH2 + 110H → 4[C6(A,F)SH32]+ 2(A,F)H3 The low sulfo-aluminate phase can form by the reaction of excess C4AF with the high sulfo-aluminate phase. [25] The above equations involve formation of hydroxides of Al and Fe because of insufficient lime in C4AF. In these products, F can substitute for A.

14] Although the initial process is not clear for C3S (in cements), it appears that C3A hydration products form through solution and topochemical processes. 1 Setting The stiffening times of cement paste or mortar fraction are determined by setting times. The setting characteristics are assessed by initial set and final set. When the concrete attains the stage of initial set, it can no longer be properly handled and placed. The final set corresponds to the stage at which hardening begins. At the time of the initial set the concrete will have exhibited a measurable loss of slump.
