Post by relatedRelated post

In practice, cement supplier will counter propose to the contractor the use of an equivalent product for Sulphate Resisting Portland Cement (SRPC) which is Blastfurnace Cement complying to MS EN 197-1, CEMIII/B.

One of the advantage is due to the pricing issues (Blastfurnace Cement is much cheaper).

Blastfurnace Cement usually is manufactured with the combination of 30% – 35% Portland Cement (OPC) and 65% – 70% Ground Granulated Blastfurnace Slag (GGBS).

In addition, Sewage Services Department in Malaysia approved Blastfurnace Cement as an alternative to Sulphate-resisting Portland cement (SRPC).
