February 12, 2008

GCC’s Expancem K Cement is an expansive cement classified according to American standard ASTM C-845 as a K Type cement. K Type cement is an expansive hydraulic cement designed to be used in the manufacturing of a Contraction Compensator Concrete (CCC). This product provides an effective and economical way to avoid cracks caused by the contraction due to the drying process of concrete manufactured using Portland Cement. This cement produces a controlled expansion effort in the concrete. K Type cement reduces tension efforts that result in cracks due to contraction. This cement is designed to keep the concrete in a compression state for the duration of its usefulness. Expancem K cement is used for the manufacturing of expansive grouts and contraction compensator concretes. Some of its applications are: Industrial floors; Containers and storage tanks; Pre-fabricated elements; Non contracting grouts; Ground and rock anchorage charges.
