Cement, Calcium Aluminate Cement, Çimsa RESISTO40®, Çimsa Çimento San. ve Tic. A.Ş.
Technical purpose of product or process The main uses of RESISTO40 are for the manufacturing of building chemicals, refractory and precast products. It offers high early strength and controllable setting time which are important features for building chemicals producers. Another important use is inner plating of sewage pipes in the precast form where resistance to acid and sulphate attacks is paramount. Due to its high alumina content, RESISTO40 can resist up to 1300 °C. Therefore, it presents an economic and viable solution for the industrial floorings that requires high temperatures.

Technology description including background system The declared product is Çimsa RESISTO40 - Calcium Aluminate Cement (RESISTO40) manufactured in accordance with /EN14647/. RESISTO40 is defined under the special cement class. Calcium aluminate cement is composed of hydraulic calcium aluminates as main constituent. Cement is the adhesive or glue which, when sets, binds particles of fine aggregate together to produce mortar. When mixed with water the cement forms a paste called the fine matrix. Cements are hydraulic materials, this means that they depend upon a reaction with water rather than air for strengthening. When water is added to cement a chemical reaction called hydration commences immediately. The reaction continues while water is still present. After hardening, it retains its strength and stability even under water.
