In any construction process around the world, the cement factories are considered to be the most important industry which supply quality cement in order to provide durability and strength in the infrastructure. 

In this article we will provide you with insight into the Pakistani cement industry, and the different types of cement that are being constructed.

Types of Cement in Pakistan

The cement produced in Pakistan can be categorized into two basic strands including hydraulic cement and non-hydraulic cement. Both of these two kinds of cement in Pakistan have different natural qualities that differ in their usage and purpose.

Hydraulic Cement

For Hydraulic cement, also named as Portland Cement, is the type of cement that can easily developed strength anywhere under air or water. After this kind of cement dries up, it becomes completely insoluble in water, and this is considered to be a major strength of this cement. Furthermore, this type of cement is also known to harden in the absence of air. 

Hydraulic cement is also further divided into a number of categories including:

  • Masonry Cement
  • Portland Pozzolana Cement
  • Portland and Fly Ash Cement
  • White Cement
  • Portland Silica Fume Cement
  • Blast Furnace Cement
  • Expansive Cement

Non-Hydraulic Cement

Non-hydraulic cement is considered to be a traditional variation of cement that was used in the early days. It is different from hydraulic cement as it is not able to harden if it comes into contact with H2O. As the name suggests, this type of non-hydraulic cement is extracted from different minerals including oxychloride, gypsum, and lime etc. 

All of these minerals have liquid properties, and therefore, they have the tendency to dissolve in water. The different types of non-hydraulic cement in Pakistan are given below:

  • Natural Cements
  • Slag-Lime Cement
  • Pozzolan-Lime Cement
  • Calcium Aluminate Cement

Therefore, we would recommend you to always purchase hydraulic cement types for construction in the recent times as they can provide you with the required strength for your buildings and infrastructures.
