In the study, the main aim was determined conformity between blended cements and superplasticizer (SP) with fineness of mineral additives. Within this scope, compressive strength test and flow table test were performed on the cement mortars and standard consistency, setting times and soundness tests were performed on cement pastes which prepared with blended cements. In the experimental studies, bottom ash from Yatagan thermal power plant which was used after grinded size from 2 mm to 120 Am and 60 Am sizes was replaced with CEM I 42.5R type cement by weight 0%, 10%, 20% and 30%. Moreover superplasticizer additives which contained poly naphthalene sulfonate (PNS) from different companies were tried in blended cements According to the results, fineness of mineral additives increased the compressive strength of the mortars and accelerated setting times. PNS based SP's affects fresh paste behaviors such as reducing initial setting times and retarding finish setting times Another result is that company differences in PNS based chemical additives is significant parameter with cement conformity and this parameter makes up significant effects on fresh cement paste.
