SUREROAD is a portland cement that is ideal for the construction of cement-stabilised layers for roads. SUREROAD is a CEM II 32,5 N cement, manufactured with the addition of fly ash or limestone. The mineral constituents are carefully selected and the composition optimised to produce an excellent roadstabilisation cement.
PPC SUREROAD 32,5N cement has been engineered to improve the properties of materials by:
Reducing the plasticity index (PI); Improving the Unconfinned Compressive
Strength (UCS) and Indirect Tensile Strength (ITS) of the host materials; enhancing durability and achieving superior performance with the most road construction materials.
Performance testing shows excellent performance with soil classes G5 and G6, and for road strength classes C3 and C4. To determine the optimum SUREROAD addition rate with the site-specific soils, the UCS (MPa) and ITS (MPa) should be tested for a range of cement addition rates.
SUREROAD is manufactured to conform to ZWS EN 197-1 for Common Cements, in the 32,5 N strength class and is available as a Portland-limestone cement CEM II/B-L 32,5N.
Cement bags are not weatherproof and should be stored under cover, off the ground, on a 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.
