Features & Benefits

  • AfriSam Rapid Hard Cement is milled to a carefully controlled fineness and contains a chloride-based strength modifier to ensure higher early strengths.
  • Its higher fineness implies that a larger surface area is available to react with water, increasing the rate of hydration and resulting in exceptionally high early-strength development.
  • It is ideal for use in cold weather conditions due to its rapid rate of hydration.

The superior high early strength of Rapid Hard Cement makes it ideal for:

  • the precast concrete industry where quicker demoulding times are required.
  • fast-track construction projects to facilitate earlier stripping of formwork, earlier bridge launching or higher sliding rates.
  • cold weather concreting because the high liberation of heat of hydration can offset the retardation effect of low temperatures.
  • high early-strength development products.

For your convenience, all our products are supported by a highly skilled sales support, technical service and supply infrastructure. If you need any technical assistance, contact our fully equipped laboratory on 011 758 6000.
