EPD document prepared for Çimsa RECIPRO40® – Calcium Aluminate Cement with registration number S-P-02236 has been registered and published in EPD Turkey and The International EPD System. Registered EPD document applies to all global markets.
The declared product is Çimsa RECIPRO40 – Calcium Aluminate Cement (RECIPRO40) manufactured in accordance with /EN14647/. RECIPRO40 is defined under the special cement class. Calcium aluminate cement is composed of hydraulic calcium aluminates as main constituent. Cement is the adhesive or glue which, when sets, binds particles of fine aggregate together to produce mortar. When mixed with water the cement forms a paste called the fine matrix. Cements are hydraulic materials, this means that they depend upon a reaction with water rather than air for strengthening. When water is added to cement a chemical reaction called hydration commences immediately. The reaction continues while water is still present. After hardening, it retains its strength and stability even under water.
