HOLCIM ULTRA DURABLE

Cement Holcim Type HS

Holcim Ultra Durable Cement Holcim Type HS

Cement Holcim Ultra Durable HS is manufactured under the NTE INEN 2380 standard, equivalent to the ASTM C1157 standard. This product has the same resistance performance as Type GU cement, but also meets the requirements of high resistance to sulphate attack (HS).

Description and characteristics

Traditionally, the cements used and recommended to resist the attack of sulphates, have been OPC (Ordinary Portland Cement) - pure cements - known to be identified by the ASTM C150 standard as cement type II when required to provide moderate resistance to sulfates and cements Type V for high resistance to sulphate attack.

Advantage

  • Provides broad resistance to chloride ion attack, minimizing reinforced steel risk of corrosion.
  • It provides a high level of concrete performance in environments with aggressive sulfates and acidic environments.

Recommended uses

To minimize the risk of chemical attacks by sulphates that could end up in concrete deterioration and structural failures:

  • In slaughter facilities, pig farms, feedlots and food processing plants.
  • Wastewater treatment plants.
  • Mines and other acidic soil environments.
  • In factories associated with the production of milk, forestry, fishing and other environments with chemical attack susceptible structures.

Quality

It’s important to remember that there are many factors that affect the quality of a concrete with sulfate resistance. There are many factors that will produce a a sulphate resistant concrete: Design of the mixture, water-cement ratios and minimum resistances according to the type of exposure (NEC-SE-HM), proper placement and compaction, and effective curing.
