In such times when huge corporate and multinationals are working hard to integrate environmental friendly methods of production, Roman Cement Products Pvt. Ltd is making a great contribution. The company is known in the market to dedicating itself in making environmental sustenance their foundation as part of the corporate mission.
The company has adopted methods that do not harm the environment with the ways of production designed to be sensitive to environmental needs. It does support and propagate use of green construction materials.
The additives that are manufactured by the company are qualitatively at par or superior to the performance description of the Portland cement. The product has been certified to ASTM C595 “Standard Specification for Blended Cements” by two independent laboratories. The laboratories tested Roman Cement design blends using rapid freeze-thaw testing (ASTM C 666) and deicer scaling conflict testing (ASTM C 672) to find the subsequent outcomes:
• Concrete mixtures utilizing Roman Cement’s design mixes did not require air entrainment or moist curing (only air curing), yet were as durable as the control concrete specimens they were tested against
• Roman Cement concretes had significantly lower chloride ion permeability denser than the control concrete specimens
• The concrete specimens containing Roman Cement’s additives had a higher compressive strength; 7,410 pounds per square inch (PSI) versus the 5,140 PSI achieved by the control specimens, and did not show any signs of reduced resistance to chemical attack
Roman cement additives are prepared principally from waste by-products generated by other industries. These by-products would by and large be dumped into the landfills such as fly ash and granulated slag.
Contrasting to Portland cement, the manufacturing of Roman Cement’s additives does not have need of the use of energy demanding large kilns thus, reducing the amount of carbon dioxide emissions generated through the production of Portland cement on a pound-for-pound basis.
Roman Cement design mixes are a lot stronger than the usually produced cement products as there is no thermal cracking involved in the making process. In fact the workability of the design mixes are equivalent to those accomplished by Portland cement. Eliminating use of caustic chemicals, Roman cement additives do not require accelerators during the hardening phase. The mixes set quickly and proficiently as there is only need for limited cooling during large pouring. Roman Cement additives work well with Class C and Class F quality of fly ash and it has been tested and proved.
