Definition / Scope

Cements are grey powder made by calcining lime and clay, mixed with water and sand to make mortar or concrete. It is used in the production of many structures like harbours, building, roads, bridges and runways. Cement industry is one of the foremost sectors of building materials industry. The different types of cement are:

Ordinary Portland Cement : It is suitable for all general concrete construction where special properties of cement are not required. It has less resistance to chemical attack and produces medium range of strength.

Rapid Hardening Cement : It is also known as 'High early strength cement'.The strength of this cement at 3 days is similar to 7 days strength of OPC. Consequently, this cement fastens the rate of construction and decreases cost of construction.

Low Heat Cement : This cement is prepared by maintaining the tricalcium aluminate percentage below 6 per cent and increasing the C2S proportion. It is used in mass concrete work and suitable to construct the structure.

Expansive cement : This cement is used for grouting anchor bolts and construction of water storage structure as it expands slightly with time and does not shrink.

Hydrographic cement : This cement in used for construction of water structures such as spillways, dams, tanks, etc.

Quick setting cement : This cement is used where work has to be completed in very short time. It contains minimal percentage of gypsum and aluminium sulphate.

Other types of cement include Air Entraining Cement, Colored Cement, White Cement, High Alumina Cement, Blast Furnace Slag Cement and Sulphates Resisting Cement.
