Tembo SupaSet cement used in construction of Wanging’ombe District Hospital

Construction of district hospital

LafargeHolcim Tanzania is supplying Tembo cement for the construction of a new hospital. The Wanging’ombe District Hospital is currently being built under the supervision of the district engineer. Tembo SupaSet is being used to construct the foundations of the new healthcare facility.

The Wanging’ombe District Hospital is located in Wanging’ombe – one of six districts in the Njombe region. Wanging’ombe is located 130 km east of Mbeya, where the headquarters of Tembo cement is located. Around 90 percent of the entire Njombe region is rural, which means that this district hospital will provide healthcare for Tanzanian residents from a wide area.

Local contractors, architects and engineers are also involved in the construction of the district hospital. This project has created numerous employment opportunities for the residents in the surrounding areas. Hospitals such as this one are vital for the health and treatment of patients in remote areas of Tanzania.

Tembo SupaSet is a class 42.5N Portland pozzolana cement that has been developed to suit mass-concrete projects. It is a strong and durable building material that is perfect for foundations that need to bear weight for heavy structures.

Things to know about mortar for bricklaying

Things to know about mortar for bricklaying

The two most common types of mortar used for bricklaying are cement and lime mortar. They have different properties and strength characteristics, so it is important for contractors to which one to use for a project. LafargeHolcim Tanzania manufactures a few cement products that are suitable for use as mortar in brickwork. These are Tembo cement, TemboFundi and FastPlus.

Here are the things that contractors should know about mortar for bricklaying and brickwork construction:

1. Mortar does not affect the strength of brickwork – Various mortar mixes have different strengths, but they do not affect the overall strength of the brickwork. For example, mortars of mix ratios 1:6 and 1:4 have different strengths, but the brickwork will have the same strength in both cases, regardless. This is because the strength of brickwork depends on the bricks used, not the mortar.

2. An ideal mix ratio is 1:3 – When a mortar is mixed with one part cement (or lime) to three parts sand, it creates a dense mortar with fewer voids. This is an ideal mix ratio for most projects and general applications. A mix ratio richer than 1:3 is not used in bricklaying because of the high shrinkage rate. 

3. Lime mortar has a few advantages – Although lime mortar is generally weaker than cement mortar, it does have a few other advantages:

  • Lime mortar does not experience as much shrinkage as cement mortar.
  • Lime increases the workability and plasticity of the mortar mix.
  • Lime has good water retention and the mix does not dry out as quickly.
  • Lime can increase the volume of mortar by filling voids.
  • Lime makes the mortar more water-resistant and impervious to rain.

4. Lime mortar gains strength slowly – This is the reason why lime has a lower strength than cement. Lime mortar may develop early strength but it does not develop long-term strength as quickly as cement.

5. Cement-lime mortar ratios are important – When mixing cement and lime to form a hybrid mortar, it is important to know that leaner mixes (a ratio between 1:4 and 1:8) tend to be harsh when mixed with coarse sand. In these cases, plasticisers are recommended to help improve the workability of the mortar.

6. Sand affects the strength of mortar – The following factors of sand affect the strength of cement mortar, regardless of the ratio between cement and sand:

  • The grading of the sand.
  • The fineness or coarseness of the sand.
  • The angularity and roundness of the sand particles.
  • The fineness or coarseness of sand affects the plasticity of the mortar mix. Plasticity can also be increased by adding more cement to the ratio.
  • Fine sand results in a more workable mortar but more cement and water will be needed in the mix. This increases the water-cement ratio which reduces the strength of the mortar.

8. Curing is critical – The curing process is absolutely necessary to achieve the maximum strength of the mortar mix. Curing can take about seven days after bricklaying.

9. Common mistakes in brickwork mortar – The following are common mistakes that are made by contractors when making mortar mixes for bricklaying:

  • Not mixing the mortar properly.
  • Adding too much water to the mixture.
  • Laying a thick bed of mortar between bricks.
  • Using dry bricks that suck moisture out of the mortar.
  • Uneven joints between corners and bricks.
  • Voids in vertical joints between bricks.
  • Disturbance of bricks after laying.

10. Addition of pozzolana – Adding pozzolana to the mortar mix increases its strength and makes it more resistant to chemicals and harsh substances.

Tembo cement: a sustainable building material

Tembo cement: a sustainable building material

LafargeHolcim Tanzania manufactures a wide range of high-quality cement products at our Mbeya cement facility. These products are sold under the Tembo cement brand – a market leader in building materials and sustainability. Retailers, contractors and infrastructure specialists will benefit from using any Tembo cement for their construction projects.

Cement is used to make concrete; when mixed with water, sand and crushed stone, cement forms concrete which hardens when it dries. This is a highly durable building material that is kind to the environment. It produces no hazardous byproducts and does not threaten the environment – that is why concrete is such a popular substance for building.

A sustainable approach to construction with Tembo cement products will bring lasting environmental and economic benefits to contractors. LafargeHolcim Tanzania can assure the quality of Tembo cement products as they are specifically engineered using advanced admixtures and abundant raw minerals

Concrete is the natural choice for sustainable building construction. Tembo cement is safe to use and has long-lasting benefits for buildings as it will not rust, rot or burn. Once a building has reached the end of its life, the concrete can be broken down into rubble and recycled for other building projects. This means that concrete can be reused over and over again. 

Each market in the construction sector has its own needs. Tembo cement has a product that is suited to each of these needs and application, from high-strength and quick-setting cement to masonry and general purpose cement. Our products are sustainable and perfectly suited to any civil engineering application.

Raw materials used to make cement

Raw materials used to make cement

Cement is not a naturally occurring mineral or element; it is manufactured in a cement factory like LafargeHolcim Tanzania’s Tembo cement facility in Mbeya. Cement is a combination of raw minerals that are burned and ground into the fine grey powder that we all know. But what are these raw materials and where do they come from?

The most common types of rock and mineral used to make cement are:

  • Limestone (makes up the bulk of cement)
  • Clay or shale (makes the silica, alumina and ferric oxide needed for cement)
  • Fly ash (ash from burned coal)
  • Sandstone
  • Other supplementary minerals and raw materials

The limestone used to make cement will come from a quarry. It is blasted out of the ground and the rocks are sent to the quarry mill where they are graded, sized and sorted. The high-quality limestone is more expensive but better for manufacturing cement as it allows producers, like LafargeHolcim Tanzania, to manufacture a better quality product.

This high-quality limestone is crushed into a fine powder at the mill. Cement producers buy the fine limestone powder because it makes the blending process easier. Ideally, each particle of limestone powder should be no more than 90 microns thick (0.09 millimetres).

The limestone powder is then mixed and blended with the other raw materials in differing proportions, depending on the type of cement being manufactured. These blended raw materials are stored in a silo before being fed into the cement facility’s kiln. It is burned at temperatures over 1500℃ to produce clinker.

This clinker is a grey rock-like material that is then mixed with supplementary minerals, such as gypsum, and ground into the fine powder we know as cement. The composition of the clinker can change, depending on the type of cement being manufactured and the availability of the raw materials.

Cement manufacturers need to source these raw materials from local sources in order to keep transport and production costs low. Luckily, these minerals and raw materials are readily available in Tanzania. In countries where limestone and other minerals are scarce, they need to be imported but that affects the final price of the cement.

How to plaster a wall

Plaster a wall

Plastering is the process of applying a smooth surface to a concrete or brick wall. This is the surface that gets painted so it needs to be perfectly level and contain no lumps or stones. LafargeHolcim Tanzania manufactures Tembo cement, FastaPlus and TemboFundi – all of which can be used to make plasters.

This step-by-step guide on how to plaster a wall will make the process easier to understand. The whole process should take several days, so plan in advance and allow enough time for the plaster to dry and set before painting the wall. If you rush the process, the plaster will not set right and may look lumpy.

Materials needed to plaster a wall

  • Tembo cement, FastaPlus or TemboFundi
  • Plaster trowel
  • Plaster float
  • Hawk board
  • Deviling float
  • Plastic sheets
  • Dust mask
  • Sharp knife
  • PVA glue, paint roller and tray
  • Hammer and nails
  • Two buckets (one for plaster and one water)
  • Stirring stick
  • Cloth
  • Sandpaper

Steps to plaster a wall

  1. Before you start to plaster the walls, lay down the plastic sheet to protect your floors from drops of wet plaster. Brush the walls to remove any dust and loose dirt. A clean wall is important for a smooth plastering finish. If you are plastering over new plasterboards, use screen tape to mask the joints between the boards.
  2. Apply a layer of PVA glue to the walls. This ensures that the plaster will dry out evenly at a later stage. Dilute the PVA glue in water (one part glue to four parts water) on the tray. Use a paint roller to apply a thin layer of diluted glue to the entire surface of the wall.
  3. Mix the plaster according to the instructions on the bag of the Tembo cement bag. Wear a dust mask when handling cement powder to prevent irritation. Whisk the cement into a bucket of cold water until it has a smooth consistency with no lumps.
  4. Using a hawk board and a plaster trowel, apply the first layer of plaster to the sticky PVC-layered wall. Firstly, place some plaster on the hawk board using the trowel, then use the plaster float to push the plaster from the hawk board onto the wall. Spread it firmly upwards, flattening the float at the end of each sweep. Work from the bottom left-hand corner of the wall, upwards. Use small amounts of plaster with each sweep and apply lots of pressure to the float. This will make the wall smooth and prevent excess plaster from falling off the wall.
  5. Once the first coat of plaster is applied, wait 20 minutes for it to dry slightly. Remove any lumps by smoothing over with a trowel. Smooth out the corners of the walls and where the walls meet the floor and ceiling. Use a wet brush to even the edges out if necessary.
  6. Before applying the second layer, scrape the surface of the first layer using a deviling float (a wooden float with nails in it). This will allow the second layer to stick the first layer better. You can also use an old fork to scrape the plaster if you do not have a deviling float.
  7. Apply the second layer of plaster. Note that this layer should have a slightly more watery consistency than the first layer, so mix the cement with a bit more water. The second layer should be about two millimetres thick when applied. 
  8. Once the second layer has dried slightly, you can polish the surface to make it perfectly smooth. To do this, mist the surface with water using a spray bottle. Run the trowel over the misted surface to smooth the plaster. Finish by running a clean float over the entire surface of the plastered wall. Leave the plaster to dry and then use some sandpaper to remove any lines, lumps or excess plaster.

Once the plaster has dried completely, it can be painted. Remember to use a base coat of primer before painting it. You may need a few layers of paint to get the desired colour and texture.
