Different types of cement are manufactured to meet various normal physical and chemical requirements for specific purposes. ASTM C150, “Standard Specification for Portland Cement,” provides for eight types of portland cement using Roman numeral designations. On top of standard types of portland cement available in the industry, there are also alternative types of portland cement that are used under certain circumstances. This course will look at standard cements and several alternative types of cement that are used in the precast industry. We will look at the benefits of using each type of cement and how alternative types of cement are commonly used.
At the conclusion of this webinar, you will be able to:
- Define types of standard cement and alternative cement
- Recognize scenarios when to use standard and alternative cements
- Identify the benefits of using the different types of cement
