AfriSam High Strength Cement is a specially developed composite cement for use in brick- and block-making, reservoirs, precast operations, structural concrete, shotcrete and mining operations.
AfriSam High Strength Cement can be used on its own, extended with selected mineral components or with plasticisers. This product caters for an array of specialist concrete applications to produce a wide range of cost-effective solutions. Applications include flowable or self-compacting concrete and pumped concrete for slabs on the ground.
AfriSam High Strength Cement is known for its typical high early strength, offering you outstanding benefits in terms of time-saving and meeting production deadlines. This makes it suitable for construction and structural work, as well as brick and block making. Applications include post-tensioned and pre-stressed members, early stripping of formwork in fast-track construction, and concreting in cold weather.
AfriSam High Strength Cement offers consistent quality. Due to its use of mineral components, this cement offers improved durability of concrete necessary in aggressive environments such as sewage treatment works and concrete structures in marine environments. The extremely fine particles of the mineral components act as nuclei for the formation of calcium silicate, giving a fine-filler effect and producing a denser and more homogenous microstructure in the hardened cement paste and in the aggregate interfacial zone.
The strength of this cement makes it ideal for many specialised uses, including:
