ACS GP Cement is a premium quality Portland Cement, fully compliant with AS3972 Type GP.

Uses

Ideal for concrete, mortars, renders, foundations, screed and plasters and any other project requiring a high strength cement.

Product Compatibility

ACS GP Cement may be blended with other cements complying with AS3972. It is also suitable to blend with fly ash and/or blast furnace slag complying with AS3582.

Application Instructions

Choose and calculate the appropriate aggregates to mix with ACS GP Cement depending on usage.

Accurately measure the cement and aggregate, mixing thoroughly until an even consistency and colour is achieved.

Add water slowly and continue mixing until the mixture is the right consistency. Avoid overwatering as this will lower the strength of the mix.

Place and compress the mix well, being careful not to over-finish the surface.

Curing

Allow a minimum period of seven days for curing, maintaining a moist condition where possible. Water sprays, wet sand or moisture retaining techniques, such as polyethylene sheets or curing compounds can be utilised.

For normal class concrete, curing can produce a compressive strength 80-100% greater than concrete not subjected to curing. Water application or moisture retaining curing is more effective for lower grades of concrete.

For concrete strengths of 40MPa and above, curing is equally important. However, the type of curing mechanism is considered to be less critical.

Curing will also affect other concrete properties including:

  • Reduction in the potential for plastic cracking
  • Improvements in surface quality, durability and impermeability.
  • An improvement in abrasion resistance
  • Reduction in the carbonation rate

 

Suggested Mix Ratios

The following rations are based on weight. For each 20kg bag of cement, you will need to add sand, gravel or lime in the proportions specified in the following table.

Sand Stone Lime 20kg GP Cement per cubic metre
High strength mix 1.5 3 n/a 20
General use 2.5 4 15
Foundations and large masses 3 4.5 n/a 13
Mortar 4 n/a n/a n/a
Mortar composite 6 n/a 1 n/a
Render and plaster 3 n/a n/a n/a

 

Storage

ACS GP Cement will keep for up to 12 months if kept in a dry store and the bags remain sealed. High temperature and high humidity conditions may reduce the storage life of the product.

Health and Safety

During use, avoid inhalation of dust and contact with the skin and eyes. Wear suitable clothing, gloves, eye protection and respiratory protective equipment.

If contact with the skin occurs, thoroughly clean the area with plenty of fresh water and soap. In case of contact with the eyes rinse with plenty of fresh water and seek medical advice.

If swallowed, seek medical attention immediately – do not induce vomiting
