EPD document prepared for Adocim CEM I 42.5 R Cement with registration number S-P-04132 has been registered and published in EPD Turkey and The International EPD System. Registered EPD document applies to all global markets.
Cement, one of the most important building materials, is a binding agent that sets and hardens to adhere to building units such as stones, bricks, tiles, etc. Setting and hardening result from hydration, which is a chemical combination of the cement compounds with water that yields sub microscopic crystals or a gel-like material with a high surface area. Cement hardens both in the air and under water and remains in its hardened state once reached. Portland cement is made up of clinker and gypsum. Due to its high clinker content, the strength gain is fast, and the durability is high. It is intended for general use and suitable for both prefabricated applications and conditions where early stripping is required.
