This is a special blended cement, produced by inter-grinding higher strength Ordinary Portland Cement clinker with high quality processed fly ash - based on norms set by the company''s R&D division. This unique, value-added product has hydraulic binding properties not found in ordinary cements.
It is available in specially designed 50-kg bags.
What is special about ACC Fly-ash based PPC?
ACC Fly-ash based PPC is made by intergrinding high strength clinker with specially processed flyash. This imparts a greater degree of fineness to ACC Fly-ash based PPC cement, improved workability properties while mixing, and makes concrete more corrosion resistant and impermeable. All of this makes for better long-term strength and improved corrosion resistance and therefore, greater life for your constructions. ACC Fly-ash based PPC is an eco-friendly cement
What are the advantages of using ACC Fly-ash based PPC ?
In concrete made from ordinary cements, moisture reacts with calcium hydroxide in concrete to form calcium bicarbonate, which leaches out of the concrete, leaving pores that reduce its strength. ACC Fly-ash based PPC has ingredients which react with calcium hydroxide to form CSH gel, to provide additional strength, which actually makes the concrete grow in strength over the years. It also produces less heat of hydration and offers greater resistance to the attack of aggressive waters than normal Portland cement.
Can ACC Fly-ash based PPC be used for all jobs in construction?
ACC Fly-ash based PPC easily replaces OPC and provides additional advantages for practically all types of construction applications - commercial, residential, bungalows, complexes, foundation, columns, beams, slabs and RCC jobs. It is especially recommended for mass concreting work, and where soil conditions and the prevailing environment take heavy toll of constructions made with ordinary cements.
How does ACC Fly-ash based PPC stand up to corrosive environments?
Due to its inherent characteristics, ACC Fly-ash based PPC makes very corrosion resistant concrete that is superior to concrete made with OPC. It is more impermeable to oxygen, CO2, chlorides, etc. Leaching of alkalis is reduced and the alkaline environment around steel is maintained.
