It is the result of crushing clinker and gypsum to fulfill the requirements of the standard specifications the ES 4756-1/2022 and EN 197-1/2011. The cement’s sulphate resistance is due to its low tri-calcium aluminate (C3A) content..


It is produced according to Egyptian standards ES 4756/1-2022 and complies with European specifications EN 197/1-2011.
