Portland Cement Uses

Airalon®
Air-Entraining Additive For Masonry Cement
An aqueous solution of neutralized hydroaromatic and fatty carboxylic acids used in the manufacture of air entraining portland and masonry cements. It is interground during the manufacture of these cements. Airalon is specified as a reference additive under ASTM C 465 specification for air entraining additives. It is economical to use and offers proven performance.
Data Sheet

HEA2®
Grinding Aid/Pack Set Inhibitor
HEA2 is an effective dispersant for use as a grinding aid/pack set inhibitor for portland cement and other hydraulic cements. It improves the efficiency of the grinding process by preventing the newly fractured cement particles from reagglomerating. HEA2 increases mill output at the same cement fineness, reduces grinding costs, increases cement strengths and increases cement flowability. It is effective in both open circuit and closed circuit cement mills.
Data Sheet

MTDA®
Grinding Aid/Pack Set Inhibitor
A chemical additive which acts as an effective grinding aid/pack set inhibitor on portland or blended cements. It increases mill output at the same cement fineness, reduces grinding costs, improves cement strengths, increases cement flowability and is easy and safe to handle.
Data Sheet

TDA®
Quality/Strength Enhancing Additive
Aqueous compositions which combine the performance of traditional grinding aids with set acceleration, water reduction and/or strength enhancement to provide optimum performance to meet the specific needs of the producer. TDA additives can increase both the grinding efficiency and the all age compressive strengths of the cement, reduce cost of cement production and increase the rate of hydration. In addition, they increase the workability of cements, mortars and concretes and increase the flowability of cement during handling, storage or packaging, resulting in lower handling costs and reduced waste.
Data Sheet

CBA®
Quality/Strength Enhancing Additive
A new concept in grinding aids, CBA additive offers all the benefits of traditional grinding aids such as increased grinding efficiency and cement flowability. In addition, in many cases it has been found to improve the strength, particularly the late strength, of cement. A "Grinding Aid Plus," CBA allows the cement producer to trade off strength gains for reduced fineness and achieve lower unit power savings compared with other grinding aids. It has also been known to improve the workability of cement mortars and concrete.
