Abstract

The retarding and stopping effects of boron compounds at even very low concentrations on the process of cement hydration are well known phenomena. Due to this property, boron compounds are used in concrete and other cementitious composites as set retarding additives In addition, the possibilities of usage for boron compounds in cement composites for different purposes are still being investigated by many research studies.
