Portland limestone cement NA 442/2013

Def:

Is a gray cement, containing:

                     * 80 to 94% of ordinary C3S clinker ≥ 55%

                     * 6 to 20% pure limestone

                     * About 5% gypsum as a setting regulator.

AREA OF USE  :

• Common concrete (unreinforced or weakly reinforced: foundations, reduced spans, rapid form stripping;

• Precast unreinforced concrete products (blocks, slabs, etc.);

•Masonry ;

• Soil stabilization;

• Large-scale works (dams etc.);

• Road concrete.
