Benefits of Birla.A1 Premium Cement:

Optimum Fineness

Due to the usage of uniform-sized processed fly ash and high-tech state-of-the-art production facilities, Birla.A1 Premium Cement demonstrates optimum fineness. Structures constructed with Birla.A1 Premium Cement has excellent durability characteristics.

Lower Heat of Hydration

Birla.A1 Premium Cement contains C3a leading to low evolution of heat during hydration. This prevents development of cracks during hydration process. Birla.A1 Premium Cement is therefore highly recommended for mass concreting structures such as dams, hydropower stations, heavy machinery foundations etc., apart from roofing, foundations and other regular constructions.

Corrosion Resistant

Concrete made with Birla.A1 Premium Cement is impermeable to chemical and water. Chlorides and other chemicals more effectively barred from having contact with the reinforcement. Concrete made with Birla.A1 Premium Cement becomes corrosion resistant.

Better Workability

Processed spherical shaped fly ash and Uniform Particle Size Distribution obtained through superior quality control process gives increased workability, even at lower water-cement ratio. This results in more strength of concrete and reduces weeding during concreting.

Lower Permeability

Due to reduced Water-Cement ratio, the concrete becomes impermeable and has a better workability. This makes the concrete more resistant to chemical attacks.

Sulphate Resistant

The Ca (OH)2 produced during hydration is highly prone to chemical attacks. Perfectly processed fly ash with reactive silica, reacts with Ca (OH)2 and converts into C-S-H gel. Thus the concrete made with Birla.A1 Premium Cement has better sulphate resistant quality.
