GENERAL

Cement is one of the most important building materials in the world and has been used for millions of years. It is created by combining calcium, silicon, aluminium, iron and other ingredients such as limestone, clay and sand. It is the main component of concrete and is essentially a substance used in construction to bind materials together such as sand and aggregate. Cement is often lime-based and can be characterized as either hydraulic or non-hydraulic. Hydraulic cement has the ability to set and harden very quickly when mixed with water. It is used to prevent leaks in concrete and masonry structures and therefore incredibly useful in the construction of swimming pools, drainage systems, foundations and fountains for example. Non-hydraulic cement reacts with carbon dioxide instead of water and is resistant to attack by chemicals after setting. There are many different types of hydraulic and non-hydraulic cement, each with its own properties, uses and advantages, and each variety that is manufactured has to comply with specific industry standards and norms. Cement is also graded based on its individual compressive strength. LafargeHolcim has 226 cement and grinding plants worldwide with 56 133 employees.

UJUMLA

Saruji ni mojawapo ya nyenzo muhimu zaidi za ujenzi kote duniani na imetumiwa kwa mamilioni ya miaka. Saruji huundwa kwa kuchanganya kalsiamu, silikoni, aluminiamu, chuma na viungo vingine kama vile chokaa, udongo na changarawe. Saruji ndiyo sehemu kuu ya zege, na kimsingi ni nyenzo inayotumiwa katika ujenzi wa kunatisha nyenzo, kama vile changarawe na mawe. Mara nyingi, saruji hutengenezwa kwa chokaa na inaweza kufasiliwa kuwa saruji ya maji au isiyo ya maji. Saruji ya maji ina uwezo wa kuwekwa na kukauka haraka sana ikichanganywa kwa maji. Saruji ya maji hutumika kuzuia kuvuja katika miundo ya zege na uashi, na hivyo ni muhimu sana katika ujenzi wa vitu kama vile mabwawa ya kuogelea, mifereji ya maji, misingi na chemchemi. Saruji isiyo ya maji huchanganywa na kaboni ya dioksidi badala ya maji, na ukinzana na kemikali baada ya kuwekwa. Kuna aina nyingi za saruji ya maji na isiyo ya maji, na kila moja ina sifa, matumizi na manufaa yake maalum, na kila aina inayotengenezwa inapaswa kuzingatia viwango na kanuni maalum za sekta ya ujenzi.
