This work presents an overview of the most relevant studies developed to understand the enhancement promoted by the double effect of the crystalline admixtures (CAs), both as permeability-reducers and as self-healing stimulators in cement-based materials. Thus, an in-depth investigation was carried out of the main mecha-nisms of CAs disclosed in the literature in order to associate the relationship between healing products and performance improvement in cementitious materials. Further, an examination of the impact of different factors in cementitious systems with CAs was reported, as well as the synergetic effects of CAs with other constituents. Finally, conclusions were drawn highlighting research needs and addressing future works in order to provide a substantial overview of the latest information in the literature for those who are working or intend to work with this type of admixture.

Abstract

This work presents an overview of the most relevant studies developed to understand the enhancement promoted by the double effect of the crystalline admixtures (CAs), both as permeability-reducers and as self-healing stimulators in cement-based materials. Thus, an in-depth investigation was carried out of the main mecha-nisms of CAs disclosed in the literature in order to associate the relationship between healing products and performance improvement in cementitious materials. Further, an examination of the impact of different factors in cementitious systems with CAs was reported, as well as the synergetic effects of CAs with other constituents. Finally, conclusions were drawn highlighting research needs and addressing future works in order to provide a substantial overview of the latest information in the literature for those who are working or intend to work with this type of admixture.
