Clinker
In the manufacture of portland cement, clinker is lumps or nodules, usually 3-25 mm in diameter. Portland cement clinker is made by heating in a rotary kiln at high temperature ( 1450 °C ) a homogeneous mixture of raw materials. The major raw material for the clinker-making is usually limestone (CaCO3) and alumino-silicate. Some of the second raw materials used are: clay, shale, sand, iron ore, bauxite, fly ash and slag. Clinker is ground (usually with the addition of a little gypsum, that is, calcium sulfate dihydrate) to become portland cement. It may also be combined with other active ingredients or chemical admixtures to produce:
    •ground granulated blast furnace slag cement
    •pozzolana cement
    •silica fume cement
Clinker, if stored in dry conditions, can be kept for several months without appreciable loss of quality. Because of this, and because it can easily be handled by ordinary mineral handling equipment, clinker is traded internationally in large quantities. Cement manufacturers purchasing clinker grind it as an addition to their own clinker at their cement plants. Manufacturers also ship clinker to grinding plants in areas where cement-making raw materials are not available.
Types of clinker:
Ordinary Portland Clinker ( OPC)
Sulfate Resistant Clinker ( SRC )

Ordinary Portland Cement:


Ordinary Portland Cement is one of the most commonly used types of cement. OPC is made by heating a mixture of limestone and clay or other materials of similar bulk composition and reactivity, to a temperature of 1450 °C . These results in partial fusion and formation of nodules called clinker. This clinker when ground with a certain percentage of gypsum results in cement.
Ordinary Portland Cement is a high-quality, cost-effective building material—mainly composed of clinker—that meets all applicable chemical and physical requirements and is widely used in all construction segments: residential, commercial, industrial, and public infrastructure. Ordinary Portland Cement is suitable for all modern types of Construction ( buildings, road Construction, bridges, viaducts) , including all kinds of masonry, concrete works, pre-stressed concrete, repair works etc.


CEM I 42.5 R and CEM I 42.5 N cements are produced with clinker - 96% and 4% limestone. The limestone that is added during grounding process is for adjustment of the setting period. Final resistance ( min. 42,5 Nt/mm2 ) is obtained at the end of 28 days regarding portland cements. Increasing of the resistance after this period is too few and slow.
Technical Specifications
This cement is used when high resistance concrete is required or for manufacturing of concrete that has high strength resistance initially. Prefabricate, prestressed concretes are suitable for tunnel form applications, which are very common at work of arts and collective housing constructions.

For producing CEM II/A-M (P-LL) 32,5 R/N, CEM II/B-M (P-LL) 32,5 R/N and CEM II/A-M (P-LL) 42,5 R/N cements, pozzolanas and limestone are added to clinker as additive. Pozzolanas is the most important natural pozzolonic material that it is used as cement additive.
Pozzolanas cements have the same features with portland cement in terms of pressure resistance, setting period and volume expansion. ( Resistance- 28 days: min. 42,5 Nt/mm2 )
Pozzolanas blended cements are used for general purposes. They can be used in mass concrete applications such as foundations, retaining walls and dams, being a good connector in terms of chemical endurability.

Sulphate Resistant Cement:
Sulphate Resistant
Cement is used in projects such as dams that are exposed to high amounts of sulfates. It is also used wherever there are constructions that are in direct contact with clay soil, which contains a large amount of sulfate salt, such as foundations and pillars. Sulphate Resistant is a pre-blended, ready-to-use cement base grout containing non-ferrous fluidities and anti-shrinkage compounds blended with siliceous aggregate and Portland cement. A highly sulphate resistant cement, with an extremely low C3A content, is utilized in the manufacture of Sulphate Resistant Grout. This special cement is very resistant to attack from sodium and magnesium sulphates found in ground water. SRC is used where sulfate salts are present on the soil or in saline water. This cement has potential to resist the destructive attack of sulfates, especially in the foundations or the areas mostly subjected to sulfate attack.
SRC is designed to overcome the problem of sulfate attack by reducing its C3A content.

Sulphate Resistant Cement SRC 42.5 R and SRC 32.5 N is manufactured by grounding of specially produced clinker with limestone in the mill. The rate of C3A (tricalcium aluminat) should be maximum 5% and the amount of C4Af + 2C3A should be maximum 25% in the cement. This production requires intensive labor and technique from preparation of the raw material to kilning them in the kiln, therefore it is made only by few factories in our country.
Technical Specifications
This cement shows resistance against cement sulphate waters.
Area of use:
    • used at harbors,
    • waste water systems,
    • dams,
    • underground water pipes,
    • foundations, sewers, irrigation canals and treatment plants.
    • it is appropriate cement for using at the structures that require resistancy against chemical effects such as sea water and sulphate environments.


White Portland Cement
White Portland Cement
is manufactured with limestone, low iron content kaolin clay, and gypsum. It is used in architectural works requiring great brightness and artistic finishes, to create mosaics and artificial granite, and for sculptural casts and other applications where white prevails.

Oil-well Cement
Oil-well cement is a specially designed variety of hydraulic cement produced with gray portland clinker. It usually forges slowly and is manageable at high temperatures and pressures. Produced in classes from A to H and J, oil-well cement is applicable for different depth, chemical aggression, or pressure levels.

Blended Cements
Blended hydraulic
cements are produced by intergrinding or blending portland cement and supplementary cementitious materials such as ground granulated blast furnace slag, fly ash, silica fume, calcined clay, hydrated lime, and other pozzolans. The use of blended cements in ready-mix concrete reduces mixing water and bleeding, improves workability and finishing, inhibits sulfate attack and the alkali-aggregate reaction, and reduces the heat of hydration.
The use of blended cements reinforces the dedication to sustainable practices and furthers the objective of offering an increasing range of more sustainable products.
