The possibility of producing vibro- and self-flow low-cement periclase concretes is investigated. It is shown that when the concrete mixture is prepared in traditional preparation conditions the aggregate and the finely ground component based on the fused periclase are hardly hydrated: the brucite content after 3 days of concrete hardening does not exceed 1%. The data obtained may be used as the basis for the further development of


periclase low-cement concretes hydration brucite 


Results were obtained within the scope of a comprehensive project for creating high-tech production on the theme “Development and assimilation of high-tech production of cold resistant and corrosion resistant rolled product for manufacturing straight seam gas and oil pipes within the scope of infrastructure development of TÉK RF with the aim of import substitution” within the scope of an RF Government resolution No. 218 of 04.09.10, agreement No. 02.G25.31.0141.
