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