Portland cement is produced by intergrinding cement clinker with ca. 5% gypsum to a high surface area. The cement clinker is composed of various calcium minerals, e.g. calcium silicates, aluminates, ferrites, etc. with the principal minerals being tricalcium silicate, Ca3SiO5, dicalcium silicate, β-Ca2SiO4, tricalcium aluminate, Ca3Al2O6, and a calcium alumino-ferrite solid solution, having a composition between Ca4Fe4O10 and Ca4FeAl3O10.
