Ordinary Portland Cement (OPC)
Ordinary Portland Cement is mostly made of calcareous and argillaceous minerals, including limestone or chalk, as well as aluminum oxide, silica oxide, ferric oxide, and magnesium oxide, which are all found in clay or shell. Nearly every nation has the raw resources needed to produce Portland cement.
The rocks are mined from the raw materials, which are then crushed to a size of no more than 50 mm. The raw materials are combined and ground in a raw mill. Weight feeders transfer each item onto the belt in precisely measured proportions. To create Ordinary Portland Cement, the raw mixture is properly prepared for its chemical composition. Jagadamba cement plays a huge role in producing the best OPC cement in Nepal.
Benefits of OPC
- Gives architects and engineers the freedom to create portions that are more streamlined and cost-effective.
- Develops strong early on, allowing for considerably quicker removal of the formwork for the slabs and beams, which speeds up construction and reduces the need for centering.
- Due to the extremely low percentage of alkalis, chlorides, magnesia, and free lime in its composition, it creates concrete that is exceedingly durable and sound.
- In adverse settings, the almost nonexistent chloride concentration prevents concrete structures from corroding.
- Due to their excellent early strength, concrete of grades M15, M20, and M25 and precast segments can be produced with significant savings in cement use.
