Types of Cement and their uses

 

Cement is one of the vital construction elements which ensure the strength of any construction. Given below different types of cements as well as their compositions and applications.

Types of Cement

Composition

Purpose

Rapid Hardening Cement

Extended Lime content

Previously it is utilized in concrete where form work are separated in initial phase. It brings extreme high strength in concrete.

Quick setting cement

Little percentage of aluminium sulphate as an accelerator and minimize percentage of Gypsum with fine grinding

It is applied in works be finished in very quickest time period. It is condensed in static and running water

Low Heat Cement

Produced with allaying tri-calcium aluminate

It is widely applied in concrete construction like gravity dams

Sulphates resisting Cement

It is developed with keeping the percentage of tricalcium aluminate under 6% that augments power against sulphates

It is utilized in construction that is damaged due to acute sulphate action through water and soil in places like canals linings, culverts, retaining walls, siphons etc.,

Sulphates resisting Cement

It is developed with keeping the percentage of tricalcium aluminate under 6% that augments power against sulphates

It is utilized in construction that is damaged due to acute sulphate action through water and soil in places like canals linings, culverts, retaining walls, siphons etc.,

Blast Furnace Slag Cement

It is developed by crushing the clinkers through nearly 60% slag and looks like close to properties of Portland cement

It can be applied for works where economic considerations are very much needed.

High Alumina Cement

It is developed by dissolving mixture of bauxite and lime. Then it is crushed with the clinker. It is quickly solidified with primary and final setting time of about 3.5 and 5 hours correspondingly

It is applied in works where concrete has to undergo excessive temperatures, frost, and acidic action.

High Alumina Cement

It is developed by dissolving mixture of bauxite and lime. Then it is crushed with the clinker. It is quickly solidified with primary and final setting time of about 3.5 and 5 hours correspondingly

It is applied in works where concrete has to undergo excessive temperatures, frost, and acidic action.

White Cement

It is developed with raw materials which does not contain any Iron oxide.

It is very expensive and is utilized for architectural designs like pre-cast curtain wall and facing panels, terrazzo surface etc.,

Pozzolanic Cement

It is developed with crashing pozzolanic clinker with Portland cement

Itís application is found in marine structures, sewage works, sewage works and for laying concrete under water such as bridges, piers, dams etc.,

Air Entraining Cement

It is formed with the addition of indigenous air pulling agents like resins, glues, sodium salts of Sulphates etc throughout the crashing of clinker.

It perfectly ideal for enhancing the functionality with smaller water cement ratio and to make frost resistance of concrete better.

Hydrographic cement

It produced with blending water repelling chemicals

This cement provides high functionality and potency
