Frequently Asked Breedon Cement Questions

What Is Standard CEM II? 

CEM II / B-S 42,5R stands as a distinctive cement formulation achieved through the meticulous grinding of Portland clinker, granulated blast-furnace slag (6-20% in line with EN 197-1), and gypsum. 

It presents remarkable 2-day strengths ranging from 26 to 32 MPa and consistent 28-day strengths of 55 to 61 MPa. 

This cement blend is specifically tailored for intricate concrete structures that demand exceptional performance and endurance. 

What Exactly Is Masonry Cement? 

Masonry cements serve as a key ingredient in mortar applications. They combine portland cement with finely ground limestone or other fillers. Air entraining agents and workability aids are added to this cement composition to enhance plasticity and prevent cracking.

How To Determine The Best Cement For My Project? 

Determining the best cement for your project requires careful consideration of various factors. 

Start by assessing the specific requirements of your project, such as the type of construction, intended use, and environmental conditions. Consider the desired strength, durability, and setting time of the cement. Additionally, evaluate any special characteristics or additives needed, such as water resistance or colour. 

Research different cement types, such as Portland cement, blended cement, or speciality cement, and their suitability for your project. 

By taking into account these factors and seeking professional guidance, you can make an informed decision and select the best cement for your project's success.
