What is the difference between low alkali cement and ordinary cement
From April the French government will reduce fuel taxes slightly to ease the burden on consumers.
Warned of possible energy shortages in France by the end of the year and called on the French to conserve electricity and gas from now on, saying that if nothing was done, The energy situation will be tough this winter. Some experts say that there are two main reasons for France's energy crisis: first, the conflict between Russia and Ukraine affected the gas market and caused supply tension; The second is a safety review of France's newest nuclear power plant, which may lead to a reduction in output this year. In order to alleviate the energy crisis, the whole French society needs to be mobilized, whether it is the industrial sector, the tertiary sector or every French citizen. Now it is urgent. Rising fuel prices may also have an impact on shipments of the low alkali cement.
There are many types of cement, such as low alkali cement, ordinary cement and so on. Do you know the difference between low alkali cement and ordinary cement? What are the precautions for the use of cement?
The difference between low alkali cement and ordinary cement
1. The properties are different. The raw materials of low-alkali cement contain a large amount of blast furnace slag, while the raw materials of ordinary cement are mainly limestone and clay.
2. The characteristics and functions are different. Low-alkali cement is suitable for use in particular areas because the alkalinity is relatively low, while ordinary cement has a broader range of use and higher alkalinity.
Precautions for the use of cement
1. Do not expose to the sun for quick drying
After the construction is completed, attention must be paid to the maintenance of the glue to avoid the evaporation of water too fast, resulting in too fast drying and reducing the strength. The general maintenance time is about seven days.
2. Avoid freezing at a negative temperature
After the concrete is mixed, it cannot be frozen because the temperature is too low. So be sure to choose a suitable temperature environment for construction.
3. Avoid high temperature and heat
If the construction temperature is too high, the calcium hydride in the concrete is easily decomposed, which will lead to the problem of reducing the strength of the concrete. If it needs to be constructed in a high-temperature environment for some special reasons, it is best to add some heat-resistant materials to the concrete, which can increase the strength of the concrete.
4, avoid the base layer from being dirty and soft
Be sure to treat the base layer firmly before construction so that the cement and the foundation will be firmly bonded together during construction. If the construction is on a smooth base surface, the base surface must be brushed so that the cement and the base surface can bond more firmly. In addition, when mixing concrete, be sure to mix evenly so that the concrete setting effect will be better during construction.

Since the beginning of this year, China's macro policies have made continuous efforts to stabilize economic growth. America and Europe are raising interest rates to control inflation. On March the European Central Bank left its three key interest rates unchanged and began to scale back its asset-purchase programme. Then the Federal Reserve raised the target range of the federal funds rate by 25 basis points to 0.25%-0.5%. The accelerated tightening of monetary policies in the US and Europe pushed capital back to the US and increased interest rates, which will definitely increase the risk of RMB depreciation and capital outflow. The price and market of the low alkali cement will also be affected, resulting in a range of fluctuations. You are welcome to contact us for the latest quotation of low alkali cement.
