The present paper summarizes the results obtained in the study of the effect of the composition of clinkers from various Czech cement works on the properties of gypsum-free (hereafter GF) cements. The study has demonstrated a significant effect of free CaO and a small effect of alite (C₃A) in clinker on the properties of GF cement. To attain high early strength in GF cements, the clinkers should not be highly alitic and should not have a low content of free CaO.
