Description

Assiut Portland cement – CEM I (32.5 N)

Portland cement was the first cement to be produced all over the world, and the most popular one. It was named “Portland” because of the similarity in shape and color with the cement material and limestone, which exists in Portland Island, in England. It is defined as the hydraulic bonding grey fine powder, which is the result from crushing a dry mix, made of clinker and gypsum. Adding and mixing water to it hardens this grey fine powder, which is known as the initial setting, and this is what makes it resistant to water and able to bare compressive stresses.

Uses and applications

It can be used in all concrete construction such as reinforced buildings, water tanks, roads, and any other building works, which are not subjected to sulphate effect.
It also can be used in relevant industries of the construction, as hollow and solid blocks, tiles and railway line concrete supports.
