Portland Cement 32.5R

Portland Cement 32.5R

Portland Cement 32.5R is a high strength cement extended by either slag, limestone, calcined clay or a combination of these materials, and is manufactured to EN 197:2000 standard.

 

Structural Applications

  • Reinforced Concrete

  • Cement Concrete/ Mortar

  • Suspended slabs

  • Beams

  • Columns

  • Foundations

  • Lintels

  • Water retaining structures

  • Pre cast concrete members -

  • General Construction-Manufacturing of pavers, bricks, roof tiles and a number of precast elements

 

Composition and Conformance

Portland Cement (CEM II/B-L 32.5R) is formulated from Cement Clinker and inter-ground with other constituents such as calcined clay brick and limestone, in accordance to the requirements of the following standards adopted from the ZWS EN 197:2000.

 

Characteristics

Portland Cement (CEM II/B-L 32.5R) 32.5R is characterised by good early and 28 day strengths.

 

Application

Making concrete with Portland Cement (CEM II/B-L 32.5R) requires a standard ratio mix of 1:3:4 (cement: sand: stone) Ratios are a standard guide and contractors can apply variable methods in their mixing ratios.

 

Material and safety data

 

Inhalation: Wear approved dust masks as breathing cement dust may cause nose, throat, lung irritation or choking.

 

Eyes: Wear glasses or safety goggles to prevent contact with eyes. Eye contact with cement may cause serious and potentially irreversible injuries.

 

Skin contact: Wear impervious gloves, shoes and protective clothing to prevent skin contact. Prolonged skin contact with wet cement may cause serious burns. Repeated contact may cause contact dermatitis.

 

Ingestion: In case of accidental ingestion, do not induce vomiting. If the person is conscious, wash out mouth with water and give plenty of water to drink.

 

Handling: Cement when mixed with water on application produces heat which is called heat of hydration and can cause irritation when handled without gloves.

Masonry Cement MC22.5X.

Masonry Cement MC 22.5X.  

Masonry Cement: MC 22.5X is manufactured to EN 413:2001.The cement is ideal for general construction works like floor screeds, brick mortar and plastering mortar. The cement is also ideal for soil stabilization during road construction with materials that have high plasticity.

 

Composition and Conformance

Masonry Cement (22.5X) is formulated from Cement Clinker and inter-ground with other constituents such as calcined clay brick and limestone, in accordance to the requirements of ZWS EN 413:2001

 

Uses

  • Cement Mortar

  • Floor surface screeds

  • Internal and external plastering

  • Mortar for brick laying

  • General Construction

 

Characteristics

  • Masonry Cement (22.5X) is characterised by good early and 28 day strengths.

 

Application

Making mortar with Masonry Cement (22.5X) requires a standard ratio mix of 1:4 (cement:sand). Ratios are a standard guide and contractors can apply variable methods in their mixing ratios.

 

Material and safety data

 

Inhalation: Wear approved dust masks as breathing cement dust may cause nose, throat, lung irritation or choking.

 

Eyes: Wear glasses or safety goggles to prevent contact with eyes. Eye contact with cement may cause serious and potentially irreversible injuries.

 

Skin contact: Wear impervious gloves, shoes and protective clothing to prevent skin contact. Prolonged skin contact with wet cement may cause serious burns. Repeated contact may cause contact dermatitis.

 

Ingestion: In case of accidental ingestion, do not induce vomiting. If the person is conscious, wash out mouth with water and give plenty of water to drink.

 

Handling: Cement when mixed with water on application produces heat which is called heat of hydration and can cause irritation when handled without gloves .

SupaSet 42,5R

SupaSet - 42,5 R

Supaset is a rapid setting cement which offers quick turnaround on production resulting in higher productivity and better returns. It is a premium brand which offers high quality bricks, concrete and other applications for less. The product has undergone stringent testing in laboratories and with customers to ensure the consistency and reliability for block making and concrete applications. The consistent quality and fast setting properties make it the ideal choice for concrete brick makers, builders, architects, engineers and contractors for high strength concrete applications and DIY enthusiasts. Concrete up to 40MPa can be produced using this cement.

 

Applications

SupaSet for blockmaking and concrete offers consistent strength, fast setting, workability and durability, making it perfect for:

  • Brick and blockmaking

  • Precast operations

  • Structural concrete applications

  • Dam/reservoir construction

 

Strength Performance

SupaSet for blockmaking and concrete offers the following characteristics:

  • A high rate of early strength development improving the productivity of concrete product manufacturers.

  • The fast drying rate allows for blocks to be moved quicker increasing the productivity of concrete brick makers with limited storage space.

  • Improved workability: for easier placing, compaction and finishing.

  • Reduced water requirement resulting in less cracking and more strength, leaving fewer surface cracks and imperfections.

  • Better cohesion: the concrete stays uniformly mixed, instead of segregating before the concrete can set.

 

Safety when handling Cement

  • Avoid contact with cement (skin, eyes, and mouth) and wear gloves.

  • Skin exposed to wet concrete should be washed as soon as possible.

  • Wear protective dust masks.

  • Medical attention should be sought in cases of excessive inhalation or eye contact

How to create value from waste

Large amounts of natural resources, particularly minerals and fossil fuels, are used to manufacture cement. For many years the Group has been working to reduce the environmental impact of its activities by finding ways to obtain value from waste products.
