Participation in the RILEM TC 267-TRM “Test for reactivity of supplementary cementitious materials” phase 3:
External call for materials

Based on extensive internal testing and optimization work RILEM TC-TRM concluded that two new methods are most promising to measure the chemical reactivity of SCMs, i.e. the R3 heat release and the R3 bound water methods. In the final third phase, these two methods will be applied to a broad range of new and conventional SCMs to establish the scope and potential interferences of the methods.

If you would like to submit your material for testing please fill out the form below before the 15th of March 2019

All the applications will be screened and a selection of 50-100 materials will be made by the RILEM TC 267-TRM. For the selected materials, the following will be requested:

  • 50 kg of dry, ground ready to use homogenized SCM to be sent to EPFL (Switzerland) before the end of May 2019

What we offer:

  • SCM characterization (PSD, XRF, XRD)
  • Testing of reactivity by mortar strength in combination with benchmark cement
  • Reactivity by R3 testing
  • Report comparing the test results with benchmark SCMs (coal combustion fly ashes, blast furnace slags, natural pozzolans, calcined clays)

Contribution to costs:

  • 500 euros for participation (VAT not included) + shipping cost
