Compared artificial portland cements (CPA type) without mineral addition and blended portland cements (CPJ) containing 15 to 25 percent filler, while attempting to keep the mechanical strength class of both types constant. The properties studied were: binder hydration, strength variations, types of hydrates, porosity, etc.; effect of seasonal temperature variations; and resistance to various aggressive environmental agents (carbonation, freezing and thawing, seawater, diffusion of chlorides). For constant mechanical strength class, the durability of CPJ cements with fillers is identical to that of CPA without mineral addition.
