Product advice from leading PPC cement supplier: in the construction industry, foremen and labourers are often required to select the correct type of cement product for the task or project at hand. The choices are most often between OPC and PPC cement. Understanding the difference between these types of cements is a key factor when making a choice. OPC cement is “Ordinary Portland Cement” and is a standard type of cement used for many purposes. PPC cement is “Pozzolanic Portland Cement”. This type of cement contains siliceous materials, which reduce the cost of the cement without negatively affecting the performance or strength thereof. In most instances, PPC cement is more resistant to chemicals and offers equal or greater strengths than OPC cement.
