Huber Carbonates launched a series of ground calcium carbonates earlier this year at The Precast Show in Denver, underscoring the powders' capacity to replace fly ash; improve concrete mix workability; contribute to self-consolidating mix spread profile; and, maintain consistent white color without impacting fresh or hardened concrete properties.
In the FT-IR spectrum of Anadara granosa seashell powder as shown in the figure 1, a peak observed at 1080 [cm.sup.-1] was due to symmetric stretching C-O (vl) of calcium carbonate which correlated with the report [9].The sharp peak observed at 861 [cm.sup.-1] (v2) was due to in plane of bending mode in C-O bond which confirmed the presence of calcium carbonate in the shell.
