DTA/TG and TG/DTG thermal studies and XRD investigations were carried out on pastes of lime-pozzolan binders to examine the relative hydration process. The binders were prepared with two natural pozzolans and hydrated lime, mixed together in different proportions. The main hydrated phases formed in the pastes are calcium silicate hydrate (CSH) and monocarboaluminate. The growth of CSH was greater for the paste of the: pozzolan richer in reactive constituents. For pastes with a higher lime/pozzolan ratio, a slowing of the formation of CSH was observed, while the formation of monocarboaluminate was more intense. The calcium hydroxide contents of the pastes obtained by thermogravimetric analysis made it possible to determine the pozzolanic activities of the two pozzolans under examination. The mortars for the various lime-pozzolan binders displayed characteristic hardening.
