Masonry cement and mortar cement are a combination of portland cement, calcium sulfate, finely ground inert matter, and special chemical additives to provide enhanced workability and durability. The primary use of these masonry cements is for the production of mortar used in masonry construction with brick, block, and veneer materials.
Our well cements are a specially designed variety of hydraulic cements produced with portland cement-clinker and calcium sulfate. Produced in classes from A to H, our well cements is applicable for different parameters of depth, chemical aggression, and/or pressure levels.
Hydraulic cements may be produced by intergrinding or blending portland cement-clinker and calcium sulfate, or portland cement with other ingredients such as calcium sources, pozzolans, slags, and other additions. These cements conform to the specified cement attributes related to concrete performance including strength development, sulfate resistance, heat of hydration, and resistance to alkali-silica reactivity.
CEMEX offers these products which have a lower CO2 footprint resulting from their lower clinker content due to the addition of other materials. The use of hydraulic cements cements reinforces our strong dedication to sustainable practices and furthers our objective of offering an increasing range of more sustainable products.
