These tests identified species compatible with cement without needing any water treatment (Amblygonocarpus andongensis and Brachystegia speciformis) as well as the species becoming compatible after a simple cold- or hot-water extraction of water-soluble components of wood (Pterocarpus angolensis, Kaya nyasica, Erythrophleum suaveoleuns, Albizia adianthifolia, and Sterculia appendiculata).
The following 10 Mozambican hardwood species were used in this study: Chanfuta (Afzelia quanzenzis), Umbila (Pterocarpus angolensis), Jambire (Millettia stuhlmannii), Umbaua (Khayanyasica), Messassa (Brachystegia speciformis), Muimbe (Julbernadia globiflora), Banga Wanga (Amblygonocarpus andongesis), Missanda (Erythrophleum suaveoleuns), Mepepe (Albizia adianthifolia), Injala (Sterculia appendiculata).
Among the different hardwood species, Banga Wanga (Amblygonocarpus andongensis) and Messassa (Brachystegia speciformis) are the most compatible with CPA-GEM I 52.5 and CPJ-CEM II 32.5 cement used in this study.
