Nowadays, Cement is an inseparable component of human civilization. In other word, the modern world is made possible by cement.
It is obvious that Cement is a very useful binding substance in construction. The usage of cement over diverse fields of construction has made it a very significant civil engineering material. Gulf Sea Petroleum is an Ordinary Portland Cement supplier connected to well respected Portland Cement manufacturers in the area. Our precious contacts in this industry empower us to comply with most enquiries for Portland cement at exceptionally competitive prices.
Ordinary Portland cement (usually referred to as OPC) has different types and classes for different uses and applications. We are a Portland Cement supplier who provides different types of this commodity from General purposes use to high sulfate resistance conditions; From Moderate Heat of Hydration to Low Heat of Hydration and high early strength cement depends on your demands. GSP also provides all cement types based on their applicants.
We provide our dear customers with different types of high-quality Ordinary Portland Cement (OPC) products in break bulk or containerized for their construction needs. We are a Portland Cement supplier who is able to supplies any large quantity of OPC on small or large vessels depending on the facilities at the port of the customer’s destination.
Cement Type I
This type of cement is usual and widely used in construction purposed and most of the masonry works.
32.5 – The 33-grade of cement means that the compressive strength of the cement after 28 days is 33N/mm2. This grade of cement is used for typical structural work under the usual environmental conditions.
42.5 – The 43-grade of cement means that the compressive strength of the cement after 28 days is 43N/mm2. This grade of cement is used for plain concrete work and plastering works.
52.5 – The 53-grade of cement means that the compressive strength of the cement after 28 days is 53 N/mm2. This type of cement is not used for ordinary works. It is frequently used for structural purposes as well as in reinforced cement concrete.
Portland Cement Type II
Ordinary Portland Cement type II is known as Moderate Heat Cement or Moderate Sulphate resistance cement and contains lower C3A content (<8%). It is appropriate for large-scale structure works, such as dams, bridge beams, and nuclear power plants.
Cement Type III
When excellently grounded Tri-calcium silicate (C3S) is present in ordinary Portland cement type I with advanced content, it gains strength more rapidly than type I. This type of OPC is called Rapid Hardening Cement. Its initial Setting Time is 30 minutes and its Final Setting Time is 600 minutes. Rapid hardening cement is mostly used where quick construction is needed like pavement construction.
Cement Type IV
It is a type of cement that produce low heat of hydration during the setting. Some chemical composition of the Ordinary Portland Cement type I is revised to decrease the heat of hydration. It is used for the structure of the dam’s large footing, and wind turbine plinths. It is also used for the chemical plants’ construction.
Cement Type V
Ordinary Portland Cement type V is called Sulphate Resisting Cement. It is used to resist sulfate attacks in concrete. This type of cement also is widely used in effluent treatment plans, Funnel, Chemical industries, water storage, drainage works, Cooling towers, Coastal protective works such as sea walls, foreshore and etc.
