Aggretates | Cement

Cement Fondu

Cement Fondu® has become a binding agent for
specialized applications thanks to its chemical,
mineralogical and physical properties. Suitable for
refractory applications where iron oxide can be
tolerated (non-reducing atmospheres), it is
recommended for use in products that require rapid
hardening, abrasion resistance, mechanical shock,
exposure to intermediate temperatures or where
or where cement with high performance properties
are required. Available in 94 lb bags.

Portland Type GUL

A general-purpose cement suitable for all uses
for which the special properties of other types of
portland cements are not required. Formerly
referred to as Type 10.
Available in 40 kg bags.

Portland Type HE

High-early-strength cement for use where high
early strengths are required. Formerly referred to
as Type 30.
Available in 40 kg bags.

Portland Type HS

A high-sulphate-resistant cement for use in
applications that require high levels of sulphate
resistance. HS cement generally gains strength
more slowly than other cement types. Formerly
referred to as Type 50.
Available in 40 kg bags.

Federal White Type GUL Cement

Federal White Type GUL Cement is a true
portland cement manufactured with selected
raw materials to ensure negligible amounts of
iron and manganese oxides so as not to
produce the gray color of normal portland
cement.
Available in 40 kg bags.

Secar 71

Secar® 71 is the preferred binder for the formulation of all types of mouldable refractories, especially the low-water, deflocculated systems designed for the most demanding applications. It is a multipurpose product that can be used
with light-colored or color-sensitive grouts that require the properties of calcium aluminate cement. Secar® 71 is a high purity white calcium aluminate cement. It contains no mixture or addition of alumina. It is recommended for products that require fast curing, abrasion resistance, mechanical shock, intermediate temperature exposure or when cement with high performance properties is required.

Aggretates| Admixtures

Disal - Polynaphtalene sulfonate (PNS)

Disal® is used as a major ingredient in different types of Superplasticizer formulations. Improves the flow properties of the concrete mix by dispersing the particles and preventing re-agglomeration.
