DG Cement SRC
- Brand: Cement
In order to allow sufficient time for application, cement must have a quick initial settings time. However, once in place, the final settings should not take too long. At DGKCC ideal initial and final setting times are maintained.
Sulphate salts present in some soils combine with moisture and tri-calcium aluminate (C3A) , one of the constituents of cement to form a compound known as Sulpho Aluminate off Hydrated Calcium. This compound is highly expansive and gradually results in the destruction of concrete. However, if a C3A content is very low, it is rendered inert and there is thus no reaction at all. British and Pakistani standards specify that in a Sulphate Resistant Cement, the C3A content must not exceed 3.5%. D.G Sulphate Resistant Cement has a much lower C3A content, making the cement highly effective against Sulphate attacks.
