The evolution of hydration products with reaction time in a hydrothermally cured CaO-SiO2-H2O system, when using quartz of different fineness, was investigated by means of thermal, X-ray diffraction and wet chemical techniques. A combination of second derivative differential thermal-, first derivative thermogravimetric- and the equivalent differential thermal- and thermogravimetric curves provided more critical information about the nature of phases formed than X-ray diffraction alone. Phenomena including overlapping dehydration reactions and interactions of phases during the thermal experiment are discussed and illustrated by examples.
