A series of tests were carried out to determine the effect of the addition of coal combustion fly ash as an additional mineral (additive) on improving the quality and compressive strength of cement according to the Indonesian National Standard (SNI 15-2049-2004). Research methods include sample preparation, manufacture of cement with 0%, 5%, 8%, 12%, and 15% fly ash variations, chemical and physical properties of cement. The parameters measured were the level of chemical composition (%) using X-Ray Fluorescence Spectroscopy (XRF) ARL 9800 OASIS, free lime content (%) by volumetry, insoluble residue level (%) by gravimetry, compressive strength (kg/cm2), and smoothness cement (cm2/g). The results showed that the addition of fly ash increased the SiO2 content of cement, thereby increasing C3S and C2S compounds which are compressive strength components of a cement. Besides, the addition of fly ash is directly proportional to IR levels, compressive strength, smoothness, and inversely proportional to free lime levels. So the addition of fly ash can improve the quality of cement by increasing chemical components, increasing compressive strength, and reducing cracking or expansion of cement.
