CEM I 42.5 R is a Portland cement in accordance with DIN EN 197-1. It is produced from Portland cement clinker and setting regulator.

Portland cement CEM I 42.5 R is primarily used to produce ready-mixed concrete, concrete products as well as plaster and mortar products.

  • Very good green compressive strength ensures short periods in the curing chamber so that manufactured concrete products can be removed within a short space of time
  • Low water demand enables economical recipes when producing pipes and shafts
  • Very good compactability and a light cement colour create very light concrete surfaces and a low demand for pigment
  • Good to very good test results of the concrete products as a result of the high final strength of the cement

CEM I 42.5 R is delivered as bulk in silo lorries.
