OPC being the most popular product is used in all types of general construction.
SRC, is a cement with additional special features. Generally used in coastal and saline areas
Block Cement has been developed exclusively for block & precast slab makers. Due to its unique specifications, it is very popular among the block & precast slabs makers
OPC being the most popular product used in all types of general construction. It is manufactured from Portland Cement Clinker and Gypsum and not only conforms but also surpasses to the following standards,
Pakistan Standard PS 232-2008(R) Grade 43
European Standard EN 197-1 : 2011, CEM I, Class 42.5N
OPC is used in general and major construction projects as well as in manufacture of concrete products. It can be used in concretes, mortars, grouts & premix concrete, where chemical attack is not a predictable risk.
OPC is compatible with super-plasticizers accelerators and retarders etc. these admixtures should be added as per the recommendations of manufacturers.
The strength development of OPC is primarily dependent on the water/cement ratio of the concrete mix design.
Effect of excess water:
Compressive strength of concrete reduces with increased water addition. Excess water addition has detrimental effect not only on the compressive strength of concrete but also on the other concrete properties as well. Compressive strength also effected when quality of sand, crush & water may be compromise / depends on quality of sand/crush/water. It increases permeability of concrete and make it more susceptible to carbonation, sulfate and chloride ingress. It is recommended to use only the minimum quantity of water which can give a manageable workability and slump.
Curing: Good curing significantly improves the compressive strength of concrete and minimizes the shrinkage cracks. Curing also improves quality of concrete surface, it reduces permeability thereby reducing the carbonation rate of concrete.
Ordinary Portland Cement used in all general construction especially in major prestigious projects where cement is to meet stringent quality requirements. It can be used in concrete, mortars, premix concrete and grouts etc. Ordinary Portland Cement is Compatible/consumable with admixture/retarders etc
SRC, is a cement with additional special features. Generally used in coastal and saline areas, It is manufactured with SR Clinker and Gypsum, as it main constituents. SRC is an active resistant against the attack of sulphate salt and alkali aggregate reaction, in addition to being cost effective and offering greater area coverage.
Greater resistance to sulphate attack, it prevents from Alkali aggregates reaction due to low Alkali content. Dark color produce better compatibility. Due to higher fineness better finished product is produced and it is economically cost effective.
The strength development of SRC is primarily dependent on the water/cement ratio. In this regard to achieve the highest strength good quality Sand, Crush & Tap water is recommended.
Good curing significantly improves the compressive strength of concrete and minimizes the shrinkage cracks. Curing also improves quality of concrete surface, it reduces permeability thereby reducing the carbonation rate of concrete.
Sulphate Resistant Cement is specially used in sea and coastal areas. Greater resistance to chemical attack from sulphates and dissolved salts present in sea and saline waters.
Another popular product of the company is Block Cement. This product has been developed exclusively for block & precast slab makers. The product due to its unique specifications give quick setting time and is very popular among the block & precast slabs makers. The product due to its quality commands premium in price over the similar products of competitors.
Clinker, primary ingredient in the cement production, it is mixed with gypsum and other additives to produce various types of cement, such as Portland cement.
Cement clinker has several uses and benefits, particularly in the construction industry. Here are the primary uses and advantages of cement clinker:
Cement Production: The primary use of cement clinker is in the production of cement. It serves as the main ingredient in the manufacturing process. When ground into a fine powder and mixed with gypsum and other additives, cement clinker becomes Portland cement, which is the most widely used type of cement in construction.
Cement clinker, when combined with aggregates (such as sand, gravel, and crushed stone) and water, forms concrete. Concrete is a versatile and essential construction material used in buildings, bridges, roads, dams, and various infrastructure projects.
Cement clinker is used in the production of mortar, which is a mixture of cement, sand, and water. Mortar is commonly used for bricklaying, plastering, and other masonry work.
Stabilization of Soil:
Cement clinker can be mixed with soil to stabilize it for construction purposes, especially in road construction and creating building foundations in areas with poor soil conditions.
Precast Concrete Products:
Cement clinker is used to manufacture precast concrete products, such as concrete blocks, pipes, and paving stones.
Strength and Durability:
Cement clinker, when converted into cement, provides concrete with excellent compressive strength and durability. This enables the construction of robust and long-lasting structures.
Cement clinker-based materials, such as concrete and mortar, are highly versatile and can be adapted to various construction applications, from small residential projects to large-scale infrastructure developments.
The production of cement clinker can utilize waste materials, such as fly ash, slag, and limestone, which can help reduce environmental impact and make use of resources that would otherwise go to waste.
Concrete made from cement clinker has excellent fire-resistant properties, making it a suitable choice for buildings where fire safety is a concern.
Cement clinker is relatively affordable and readily available in most regions, making it a cost-effective option for construction projects.
Adaptable to Different Conditions:
Cement clinker-based materials can be adapted to various environmental conditions and climates, making them suitable for use in diverse geographic regions.
While cement clinker provides numerous benefits for the construction industry, it is essential to use it responsibly and consider sustainable practices in cement production to minimize its environmental impact.
