AbstractTo determine how the surface modification of mica influences flexural strength and fracture toughness of mica-reinforced cement composites, mica was treated with HF acid and three coupling agents: two silanes (CVBS, gammaMPS) and a titanate (IDT). Significant increases in mechanical properties resulted, depending on type of treatment, concentration of treating solution, reaction time, and w/c ratio.
