Product Description

SUREROAD is a CEM II 32,5 N product, manufactured with the addition of an extender or blend of extenders (fly-ash, blastfurnace slag and/or limestone). The mineral constituents are carefully selected and the composition optimised to produce an excellent road-stabilisation cement.

Applications

PPC SUREROAD 32,5 cement has been performance engineered to improve the engineering properties of soil by:

  • Reducing the plasticity index (PI);
  • Improving the Unconfined Compressive Strength (UCS) and Indirect Tensile Strength (ITS) of the host materials;
  • Enhancing durability and achieving superior performance with most road materials.

Performance testing shows excellent performance with soil classes G5 and G6, and for road strength classes C3 and C4. 

To determine the optimum cement type and cement addition rate with site-specific soils, the UCS (MPa) and ITS (MPa) should be tested for a range of cement addition rates.

Specifications

SUREROAD is manufactured to conform to SANS 50197-1 for Common Cements, in the 32,5 N strength class and is available as a CEM II Portland-composite cement, extended with siliceous fly ash (V), blastfurnace slag, (S) and/or limestone (L).

Storage

Cement bags are not weatherproof and should be stored under cover, off the ground, on raised timber platform or on plastic sheeting to protect against rising dampness. Bags should be stacked to a maximum height of 12 bags or two pallets. Usage of bags should be first in first out.

Packaging

Bags – 50kg Polypropylene bags 

(for transportation by road or rail):

  • Unitised 40 bags (2 tons) per unit
  • Unitised on a pallet 40 bags (2 tons) per unit
  • Unitised on a pallet and covered with plastic hood. 40 bags (2 tons) per unit.

(Please note the hood is shower-proof NOT waterproof)

  • Containers: 50kg bags packed loose or in sling bags or on a pallet in standard shipping containers

Bulk 
(for transportation by road or rail):

  • Bulk cement in road or rail tankers is not recommended as the high transportation cost does not make this viable
