Tag: composite cement Carbonation and its effects

As noted previously, the reactions between atmospheric CO2 and alkaline components of concrete produce a carbonated surface layer in which the pore solution pH value is depressed to near-neutral levels. A secondary effect of carbonation, also significant in terms of its influence on corrosion, is that it can cause the release of bound chloride ions into the pore solution phase
