Abstract

The effect of Metakaolinization on the thermal and physicochemical properties of Badau Belitung kaolin is presented. Calcination of Badau Belitung kaolin indicated that kaolin was transformed to metakaolin at temperature above 500°C. The metakaolin was characterized using Xray Diffraction (XRD), Fourier Transform Infrared (FT-IR) and Brunauer-Emmett-Teller (BET). The XRD diffraction pattern of the metakaolin was highly amorphous as a result of calcination effect on the raw kaolin. The FTIR spectra of the metakaolin produced showed that the material was thermally stable at temperature range of 500-700°C, whereas the specific surface area values of the raw kaolin and the metakaolin formed were increased with increasing calcination temperature from 500oC to 700oC.
