Tips to Help You Find the Best Portland Cement Company

People often think about what the project should look like, what kind of designs a person should look out for, which raw materials you should use, what amenities they should provide, etc. But people often neglect or do not give much attention to those things which are of utmost importance. When you are working on any construction project, you want the best cement company to ensure that the cement will last long. Cement is the bonding agent that puts everything together and without high-quality cement, building a solid foundation is next to impossible.

Following are the factors one should consider while looking for the best portland cement for construction.

Types of cement: 

There are 23 different types of cement commercially used in India. Based on its constituents, each type of cement has its advantages, applications, and uses. The grade indicates the compressive strength of the cement, which helps in building the foundation of any project. The most commonly used cement are Portland Pozzolana Cement, Ordinary Portland Cement, and Portland Slag Cement. All three types of cement fulfil different purposes and are considered specialized for that type of construction.

Ordinary Portland Cement: Ordinary Portland Cement is the basic ingredient and is manufactured by a fully-automated, dry manufacturing process using state-of-the-art technology under strict quality assurance. The product comes in various specifications to suit various conditions and applications. OPC is available in OPC-33 Grade, OPC-43 Grade & OPC-53 Grade.

Advantages of Ordinary Portland Cement

1. It is highly durable due to the low percentage of alkalis, chlorides, magnesia, and free lime.

2. Almost negligible chloride content results in restraining corrosion of concrete structures in hostile environments.

3. Significant savings in cement consumption while making concrete of grades M15, M20, M25, M35, and pre-cast segments due to high strength

Portland Pozzolana Cement: Portland Pozzolana Cement, "Product of Future," is a variant of OPC cement and is prepared by a fully-automated, dry manufacturing process using state-of-the-art technology under strict quality assurance. PPC is manufactured by inter-grinding well-burnt OPC Clinker with gypsum and pozzolanic materials like power-station fly ash or siliceous earth.

Advantages of Portland Pozzolana Cement

1. Less permeability of water.

2. Resistant towards the attack of alkalies, sulfates, chlorides, and chemicals.

3. Better workability.

4. Low heat of hydration.

5. Due to high fineness, PPC has better cohesion with aggregates and makes more dense concreteness.

6. A comparative lower Water-Cement ratio provides an added advantage for the further increase of compressive strength of the concrete.

7. Better surface finish.

Portland Slag Cement: Portland Slag Cement is made by grinding clinker and granulated blast furnace slag. Due to environmental and economic benefits, one can also use Portland Slag Cement as a replacement for Ordinary Portland Cement.

Advantages of Portland Slag Cement
1. Ultimate Compressive strength
2. Resistant towards chloride and sulfate attacks
3. Low risk of cracking
4. Improved workability

Check manufacturing date: 

Cement should be used within 90 days because the cement starts losing its strength after some time.

Check cement manufacturing grade: 

Cement is available in various grades. Some of them are OPC 33 grade, OPC 43 grade, and OPC 53 grade. Use the one which is appropriate for you.

Cement Quality: 

It is difficult to identify which cement provides the best quality due to immense competition in the marketplace where so many cement companies sell their product, and therefore, it becomes difficult to choose the right one. The best method is to find a reputed company in the market with cement suppliers having years of experience and also providing ideal cement products.

Selecting the best cement can be hectic if you are not well informed about the cement quality. If you are still confused, you can even contact Wonder Cement and avail of the facility by giving a call at 1800313131, or you can visit the website to know more.
