OPC 53 Grade Cement at PARASAKTI CEMENT is produced to meet the Indian Standards Specifications as per 12269 1987

Definition:
The cement that is prepared by grinding Portland Cement Clinker and suitable proportions of Gypsum is called as Ordinary Portland cement.
Small additions of performance improvers such as Fly ash, Blast furnace slag etc are permitted.
53 grade Ordinary Portland Cement is high strength OPC and provides numerous advantages where ever concrete for special high strength
applications is required. The rate of development of strength is faster than 43 grade OPC.
53 Grade OPC is different from Rapid Hardening Portland Cement IS: 8041and their purposes of usage are different.
The Cement mortar that is prepared in 1: 3 proportions using standard sand (as per IS:650) and tested at standard laboratory conditions and
gains the compressive strength of not less than 53 MPa after 28 days, then the Cement is said to be 53 Grade Ordinary Portland Cement.
Key Benefits:

Portland Pozzolana Cement at PARASAKTI CEMENT is produced to meet the Indian Standards Specifications as per IS:
1489 (Part 1) - 1991(Flyash Based)
Definition:
A hydraulic cement prepared by grinding the mixture consisting of an intimately and uniform blend of Portland clinker and pozzolana with the
suitable addtion of gypsum or an intimate and uniform blending of Ordinary Portland Cement and fine pozzolana material.
The Cement mortar that is prepared in 1: 3 proportions using standard sand (as per IS:650) and tested at standard laboratory conditions and
should gain the compressive strength of not less than 33 MPa after 28 days,

Produces less heat of hydration and offers resistance to the attack of aggressive waters.
Higher fineness Improves the permeability of the concrete and hence durability
Increases the resistance to corrosion of reinforcement
Improves the pore size distribution & Reduces leaching of calcium hydroxide liberated during cement hydration thus reducing the
leaching.Reduces the micro cracks at the transition zones
Key Benefits:
Minimum Compressive Strength at

Sulphate Resisting Portland Cement at PARASAKTI CEMENT is produced to meet the Indian Standards Specifications
as per IS: 12330 - 1988
Definition:
The cement that is prepared by grinding Portland Cement Clinker in which the amount of tricalcium aluminate is not more than 5% and the sum
of twice the Tricacium Auminate and Tetra calcium aluminoferrite is less than 25% and suitable proportions of Gypsum.
Key Benefits:
The SRPC is beneficial in such conditions where the concrete is exposed to the risk of deterioration due to sulphate attack, in contact with soils
and ground waters containing excessive amounts of sulphates as well as for concrete in sea waters or exposed directly to sea waters.
