POWERCRETE

 

Powercrete is the first 52.5 grade cement in the region. It sets the standard for strength in cement and is especially ideal for high strength applications such as rialway sleepers, skyscraper foundations, precast slabs and beams, bridges, overpasses, windmill foundations, heavy-duty industrial floors, pre-stressed or post-tensioned concrete and more.

 

Structural Applications/Reinforced concrete

  • Prestressed concrete railway sleepers
  • Post-tensioning and prestressed slabs and beams
  • Poles and centrifugally spun precast concrete pipes
  • Bridges 
  • Overpasses/ viaducts
  • Windmill foundations
  • Large precast concrete elements
  • Raft foundations for skyscrapers
  • Self compacting concrete 
  • High rise structures, silos and slip formworks
  • High strength concrete for columns, suspended slabs, heavy duty industrial floors and water retaining structures
  • Ordinary foundations, slabs, beams and columns

Composition and Conformance

 

Product type: Ultra high strength cement: Compressive strength 52.5 MPa (N/mm2) minimum

 

Conformity: Manufactured to harmonized East African standard KS EAS 18-1 as adopted from EN 197-1 (European Norm) standards

 

Constituents: Clinker, gypsum

 

Technical name: Portland Cement CEM I 52.5 (Ex-Mombasa Plant)

 

 

Key Functional benefits 

  • Fast setting
  • Highest early and 28 day strengths
  • Reduced probability of plastic shrinkage cracking (due to less paste content)
  • Less cement usage per cubic square metre of concrete
  • Used in large element precast (precast slabs, beams, columns, etc.)
Others
• Centrifugally spun precast concrete poles and pipes
• Overpasses/viaducts/flyovers
• Large precast concrete elements
• Raft foundations for skyscrapers
• Self compacting concrete
• High strength concrete for columns and suspended slabs
• Heavy duty industrial floors and water retaining structures
• Ordinary foundations, slabs, beams and columns

 

HEALTH AND SAFETY WARNING
• When working with cement wear safety glasses and gloves
• Wash your hands after working with wet cement
• Wear a dust mask
• Wear a safety helmet
• In the event of cement contact with eyes, rinse thoroughly
with water and get medical attention if necessary
