 · Metal, ceramic, non-metal, and polymer material can be used as reinforcing element and matrix material in development of composites. The fiber/filler used in composite are stiffer and stronger then the matrix material (Called continuous phase), which serve as load carrying members. Continuous phase (matrix) of composite acts as the load ...

Effect of Soaps on the Properties of Portland Cement ...

 · Calcium and sodium stearate soap additions in the ordinary portland cement have been studied by mixing 0.5, 1.0, 1.5, 2.0, 2.5 and 3.0 per cent respectively by weight of cement. Cement and sand mortar in the ratio of 1:3 with diiferent percentages of additives were tested for workability and water retention properties.
