Properties
  • Good workability in concretes
  • High final strength in concretes
  • Low hydration temperature
  • Multi-use cement in the ready-mix concrete industries
  • Prevents lime flotation
Applications
  • Useful in all construction elements – blocks, bricks, ready-mix concrete, floor tiles and prefabricated concrete
  • Enables transfer of concrete admixtures via pumps
  • Large-scale pourings – mass concrete
  • Pouring of floors and subterranean structures
  • Pouring of swimming pools and pipes – good impermeability in the appropriate concrete admixtures
