Basic Use: CEMEX Portland Cement is used in concrete, precast, and masonry products for a multitude of construction projects including high-rise office buildings, roadway bridges and pavements, residential foundations and driveways, water collection and treatment facilities, and airport structures.
Type I: General purpose cement suitable for all uses where the special properties of other types of portland cement are not required.
Type IA: General purpose cement with an interground air-entraining additive to provide workability in certain applications and to promote durability to freezing and thawing conditions.
Type II: General purpose cement typically used in concrete exposed to moderately aggressive sulfate environments.
Type III: Cement that develops higher strength at early ages when compared with a Type I cement. It is typically used in precast or prestressed concrete, where early strength gain and quick form turnaround are desired.
The following standards apply to the use of CEMEX portland cement:
AASHTO M85, Standard Specification for Portland Cement
ASTM C150, Standard Specification for Portland Cement
Many CEMEX facilities produce portland cements that meet the optional chemical and physical requirements of ASTM C150 and AASHTO M85.
