Holcim Sanstha : the all-purpose cement ideal for concrete

Holcim Sanstha is a portland limestone cement manufactured in compliance with Sri Lankan Standard SLS 1253:2008 and British Standard CEM II/A-LL42.5N of BS EN 197-1:2000.

Attributes & Benefits The benefit of this cement in structural work is that It imparts properties which make concrete highly workable. Such improvements in workability make fresh concrete easy to compact and finish while reducing bleeding and honeycombs. The long-term strength of concrete also increases with the reduction of the honeycomb effect.

Packing: Holcim Sanstha is available in 50kg bags.

Recommended applications: Structural elements in normal concrete such as foundations columns, beams & slabs where workability and 28 day strength are the key parameters.
