Rapid Hard Cement

The arrival of precast concrete and fast-track construction has resulted in an increased demand for high early strength specialist products. This fast drying cement offers consistent, superior performance in all applications where quick mould turn-around or formwork stripping times are required.

Features and Benefits

  • Milled to a carefully controlled fineness and contains a chloride-based strength modifier to ensure higher early strengths
  • The higher fineness implies that a larger surface area is available to react with water. This increases the rate of hydration, resulting in higher early-strength development
  • High early-strength
  • Perfect for use in cold weather conditions due to its rapid hydration rate


Its high early strength makes it ideal for:

  • Precast concrete industry where quicker demoulding times are required
  • For fast-track construction projects to facilitate earlier stripping of formwork, earlier bridge launching or higher sliding rates

For your convenience, all our products are supported by a highly developed sales support, technical service and supply infrastructure. Our fully equipped laboratory is ready to help you with any technical assistance you might need on 011 758 6000.
