The utilization of calcined clay in the form of metakaolin, as a pozzolanic addition formortars and concretes has received considerable attention in recent years. It enhances mechanical performance and exhibits considerable improvement of durability properties. This paper presents the experimental results of properties of cement pastes and mortars. Cement was partially replaced by metakaolin. The constant water:binder ratio w/b = 0.4 was applied in all tested compositions. Mercury intrusion porosimetry was used for evaluation of paste microstructure.

Keywords: pozzolanic addition, metakaolin, mercury intrusion porosimetry (MIP), porosity structure.
