The warm, coastal environments of Pacific Island groups are tough on construction materials.
Golden Bay Cement has developed Ciment Général (CG) for specification in these conditions where a good overall performance is required.
Ciment Général (CG) is a general purpose blended cement, manufactured at Golden Bay Cement's Portland Manufacturing plant, near Whangarei, New Zealand. This plant has a 900,000 tonne annual capacity and supplies a range of cement products to New Zealand and South Pacific customers.
Golden Bay Cement's Portland Plant manufactures and distributes cements conforming to NZS 3122: 2009 and other relevant Standards.
Produced to exacting standards for use in the building and construction industries, these include:
Ciment Général (CG) is available from Golden Bay Cement stockists.
Ciment Général (CG) is ideal for general concrete, mortars, renders and grouts. It can also be used as a binder in applications such as cement stabilisation.
For uses requiring higher standards of performance, Golden Bay Cement manufactures other products engineered to these exacting expectations.
Supplementary cementitious materials:
Ciment Général (CG) blended cement is compatible with fly ash, silica fume and ground granulated blast furnace slag. However, it is strongly recommended that trial mixes be performed to determine optimum addition rates.
Admixtures for concrete:
Ciment Général (CG) cement is compatible with most concrete admixtures used in practice.
In areas subject to sulphate attack and marine environments, other products from Golden Bay Cement are preferred.
Golden Bay Cement's Ciment Général (CG) has been designed to exceed the requirements of NF P 15-301 Type CPJ-CEM IIA-W 42.5.
It is manufactured using clinker produced at the plant and a specially selected limestone.
