Also known as Type I Portland cement, general use (GU) cement is a binding ingredient used in concrete mixes with or without other binders. Type GU cement is suitable for all uses where the special properties of other types are not required.

 

Advantages
  • Widely available
Applications
  • Can be used in all applications depending on durability requirements and the availability of supplementary cementing materials

MS

MS cement is the perfect solution for applications that require moderate levels of sulphate resistance.
 

 

Advantages
  • Widely available, and most GU cements also meet MS requirements
Applications
  • Sea Water Exposure
  • Waist water treatment plants
  • Can be used next to high-sulfate soils

HS

Portland cement is for projects requiring high levels of sulphate resistance.

 

Advantages
  • Single silo solution for concrete requiring high sulphate resistance
  • Slower Set times than MS and GU cements
Applications
  • Used in applications that require moderate levels of sulphate resistance
