Alkali-Aggregate Reaction - cement

Alkali-silica reaction (ASR) is of more concern because aggregates containing reactive silica materials are more common. In ASR, aggregates containing certain forms of silica will react with alkali hydroxide in concrete to form a gel that swells as it adsorbs water from the surrounding cement

Reactive aggregate problem in concrete

Alkali-silica Reaction (ASR) causing irreversible deterioration of concretes occurs when silica in reactive aggregates chemically reacts with alkaline components of Portland cement forming ASR gel. Sodium (Na) and potassium (K) in the cement react with the reactive silica to create the gel.
