Stratlingite is one of the constituent minerals of the bonding matrix of low-cement castables. In this study, the crystallization processes of stratlingite in hydrates of high alumina cement at 60°C and 10°C were analyzed using X-ray diffraction (XRD) and electron probe microanalyzer (EPMA). The stratlingite has crystallized in large quantities in the samples cured at 60°C, while in the samples cured at 10°C, stratlingite was not detected beyond the period of fifteen months.
