3. Which Cement To Choose? 

Note:
OPC Cement is Mostly used in concreting (ढलाई) of structural members where a fast setting time is required. E.g., slabs, columns, etc.

PPC Cement is primarily used in plastering and masonry works ( जड़ाई ) like stone masonry, brick masonry, etc.

7. Application of OPC & PPC Cement

Cement may be prescribed as a material with adhesive and cohesive properties, which make it capable of bonding mineral fragments into a compact whole.

Cement is vital in the construction of small buildings and big mega projects.

a. OPC Cement:

Mostly used in concreting (ढलाई) of structural members where a fast setting time is required. E.g., slabs, columns, etc.

Some features of OPC cement are:

~ Sets quickly

~ It helps to maintain the economy of the project. i.e., mainly saves the time and cost of formwork.

~ Expensive compared to PPC cement

~ In the long run, crack formation is higher in OPC cement than in PPC.

b. PPC Cement: 

Primarily used in plastering and masonry works ( जड़ाई ) like stone masonry, brick masonry, etc.

Some features of PPC cement are:

~ Sets slowly

~ Cheaper compared to OPC cement

~ In the long run, it is more durable than OPC cement.

 

ii. Generally, the cement rate increases with the increase in cement grade.

For, 43-grade cement is more expensive than 33-grade cement, and 53-grade cement is more costly than 43-grade.

 

iii. 33-grade, 43-grade, and 53-grade cement are found in the market

GradeCompressive StrengthApplications
3333 N/mm2Temporary structures, plastering, tiling, brickwork, stone masonry, flooring, pathways
4343 N/mm2Small to large permanent constructions, house/building construction
5353 N/mm2High-grade concrete (M45, M60) for special constructions (nuclear power plants, airport runways)

 

~ 33 grade:

The compressive strength of the cement after 28 days is 33 N/mm2 when sampled as per Indian Standards under standard conditions.

They are used in temporary structures.

They are used for plastering, tiling, brickwork and stone masonry, flooring, pathways, etc.

~ 43 grade:

Mainly used grade of cement.

The compressive strength of the cement after 28 days is 43 N/mm2 when sampled as per Indian Standards under standard conditions.

It is utilized in very small to large permanent constructions.

The cement used in constructing our house/buildings is also 43 grade.

~ 53 grade:

The compressive strength of the cement after 28 days is 53 N/mm2 when sampled as per Indian Standards under standard conditions.

It mainly prepares higher-grade concrete like M45, M60, etc.

High-grade concrete is used in special constructions like nuclear power plant construction, airport runway construction, etc.
