Cement is a multi-use material that makes up construction staples such as Concrete and Mortar. Other uses include Stucco, Tile Grout and Thin-Set Adhesive. When made in to concrete, cement is best used for structural projects as it is the strongest of these materials. Available in variations including, Fast-SetProfessional Grade and White Portland. These variations have their own individual benefits and you can choose the cements that will give you the finish and characteristics you want.

Cement is predominately a binding material. As the Cement sets, it hardens and adheres to anything placed on it, and with the addition of performance-enhancing additives in the cements we stock, nothing will bind better. These Cements will also continue to strengthen after the set time stated for each type, they are also assessed 28 days after application to ensure quality control.

It is important that cement-based materials are used and stored correctly. It should be stored in unopened bags clear of the ground, in cool dry conditions and must be protected after placement, this assists the curing process and helps to avoid moisture loss, freezing and effects of hot and cold weather conditions.


Q.: What are the primary uses of cement?

A.: Cement serves as a fundamental material in various construction applications, including the creation of concrete, mortar, stucco, tile grout, and thin-set adhesive.

Q.: What are the different variations of cement available?

A.: Cement comes in various forms, such as Fast-Set, Professional Grade, and White Portland. Each variation offers specific benefits tailored to different project requirements.

Q.: How does cement contribute to the strength of structural projects?

A.: When used to create concrete, cement provides exceptional strength, making it ideal for structural projects. Its binding properties ensure durability and stability over time.

Q.: What measures should be taken for proper storage and usage of cement-based materials?

A.: It’s crucial to store cement in unopened bags, elevated from the ground, in cool and dry conditions. Additionally, after application, protecting the material aids in the curing process, preventing moisture loss, and mitigating the effects of extreme weather conditions.

Q.: How do the performance-enhancing additives in cement contribute to its quality?

A.: Cement additives enhance performance by improving binding strength and ensuring continued strengthening after the initial setting period. This quality control process guarantees reliable and durable construction materials for various applications.
