Autoclaved Lime-aluminosilicate Materials for Alumina Extraction and Construction.
For Reference Only At Bureau Libraries :25 pages
The initial purpose of this project was to investigate reactions between lime and aluminosilicate materials to (1) obtain compounds more susceptible to acid leaching for removal of alumina, titania, or other commercially valuable components, and (2) to develop a cementitious bond strong enough to warrant use of waste materials or inexpensive rock materials for construction materials. It was found that the first objective need not be pursued because it was unnecessary to react many materials prior to acid leaching and that the second objective was not worth pursuing because nothing was found to equal presently available sandlime bricks in terms of strength, durability, or cost.
