Lafarge Cement, part of the Aggregate Industries business, has introduced a new packed product to its range: Rapid Set Cement.
Rapid Set Cement is a Portland cement containing calcium aluminate for rapid hardening. The fast-setting, low shrinkage cement is designed for use in screeds and renders to prepare wall and floor surfaces prior to installing most tile types.
It’s suitable for dry and wet installations, including swimming pools, and can be pumped for fast application.
Setting in just one hour, its rapid strength development means screeds can accept foot traffic after three hours and bonded screeds and renders can be tiled with ceramic tiles after four hours.
It is available in 25kg paper bags and is a quality-assured BS EN 197-1 CEM II cement carrying CE marking.
