CERTIFICATIONS

MASCEM is certified to MS 1227 : 2003 Specification for Portland-fly ash cement (fly ash content (fly ash content 6 - 35%). MASCEM also conforms to CEM II/B-V of MS 522-1 : 2007 (EN 197-1 : 2000).
 

APPLICATIONS

MASCEM is suitable for applications in marine environment, mass concreting, sulfate environment, water retaining structures, basement and other structures which require low heat of hydration.

 
PROPERTIES

 
ENVIRONMENTAL BENEFITS

MARINECEM is produced using the most advanced energy efficient cement production process. The use of high quality ash to replace a portion of the clinker served to reduce significantly the total embodied CO2/ton of the product. Every ton of fly ash used to replace clinker saves around 900kg of CO2 being released into the environment and this makes MASCEM a more sustainable cement.

 
AVAILABILITY

MASCEM is available in bulk from YTL Westport cement plant.


QUALITY ASSURANCE

MASCEM is produced under stringent quality assurance, environmental management and health & safety systems. It is certified to MS ISO 9001, MS ISO 14001 & OHSAS 18001.


 
HIGHER RESISTANCE TO SULFATE ATTACKS

The UK Building Research Establishment (BRE) Digest 363 : 1996 and BS 5328 : Part 1 : 1997 have recommended the use of high PFA content cement (>25% by mass of combinations) be extended to the most severe Class '4' and Class '5' sulfate conditions.


 
BENEFITS OF MASCEM FOR TEMPERATURE USE


 
PROTECTION AGAINST ALKALI-SILICA REACTIVITY

MASCEM reduces risk of damage and expansion caused by alkali-silica reaction. Recommendations and guidelines are given in BS 5328: Part 1 : 1997, UK Concrete Society Technical Report No.30(1995) and BRE Digest 330:1997.
 
BENEFITS OF MASCEM BASED ON RECOMMENDATIONS OF THE BRITISH STANDARD
