Cement (a word derived from the Latin word “caementum” meaning “gravel, broken stone”) is artificial inorganic binder in powder form, one of the basic building materials. When mixed with water solutions or other liquids form a plastic mass, and during solidification it forms a stone-like body.

Key purpose is making concrete, building mortars or construction mixes.



Special features

PC 500 D0-N

For making high-strength precast, usual and prestressed concrete structures; for hydraulic structures (in fresh water); for exterior parts of massive cast-in-situ concrete structures; for thin-wall cast-in-situ structures, during construction of concrete work with quick stripping of formwork

Increased frost resistance

PC 400 D0-D

Concrete for road and airport pavements, concrete pressure and free-flow pipes, concrete sleepers, bridge structures, high-voltage power transmission line poles, railway catenary and lighting poles

Frost resistance

PC 400 D20

For concrete and reinforced concrete cast-in-situ structures

Increased water impermeability, crack resistance, improved time strength growth kinetics, concrete placeability, low efflorescence on the surface of products

SPC 400

For cast-in-situ concrete and precast reinforced-concrete structures, manufactured with steaming, for internal-massive concrete hydraulic and underground; for mortars, etc.

For structures subjected to alternately drying and wetting. Compared with subtype A cement, subtype B cement has increased salt resistance and water resistance. The most uniform strength gain during regulatory periods of hardening.

Note: The durability of building structures is affected by the operating conditions and environmental conditions, in which a construction site is located. In this connection, a prerequisite for concrete is selection of cement, based on its construction and technical properties and mineralogical composition, which will be most suitable for durability of concrete. Based on the findings issued by the Reinforced-Concrete Research Institute, Cemiskon, the Belgorod State Technological University named after V.G. Shukhov and the Ural State Technical University, cements of strength class PC 400 should be used for making heavy concrete of class B15-B30 (grade M200-M400), and cement of strength class 42.5 – for making heavy concrete of class B15-B40 (grade M200-M550).
