This product is manufactured by grinding a blend of white clinker, selected limestone and calcium sulfate as setting regulator. White clinker is produced by a specific process from selected raw materials with very low content of metal oxides, particularly iron oxide
The main characteristic of this product is its high whiteness index. Other characteristics are similar to those of portland limestone cement.
Limestone addition and high fineness provide an excellent workability that provides an easier placement and surface finishing. White portland cement mixed with limestone aggregates gives to concrete and mortar a color close to natural limestone. The white portland cement can be easily colored by addition of metal oxide pigments.
Fields of application
