Grasland and BB Cement.

Grasland teamed with BB Cement to provide top quality cement to Agri- and related businesses. BB Cement is manufactured to SABS standards. It is a tertiary blend made up by homogenising slagment, ash and ordinary Portland cement in controlled proportions. BB Cement has been technically designed to provide a true all purpose cement. 

BB Cement is ideally suited for use in concrete pavements, floor slabs, plaster, mortar as well as the manufacturing of bricks. Their products are designed for the contract builder, home builder and brick maker to aid in general cement needs.

BB Cement durability
Factors affecting durability are:
Expansion:
Pure cement expands from free lime and magnesium. The amount of expansion is governed by the amounts of free lime and magnesium. All products blended into our cement are inert and do not contribute to expansion and the cement will expand 50% less than pure cement and will therefore last longer.
Sulphate attack:
Attacks from sulphates (like sewage and some soil conditions that have high sulphate levels) cause concrete to deteriorate. The main reaction between the sulphate and cement is the alumina content of the cement. 
BB Cement's alumina content is 50% less than that of pure cement. Therefore possibility of sulphate attack is reduced by 50% and will last longer.
Chloride attack:
Chloride attacks take place when there are salts in the sand and water.  The salts migrate to the steel reinforcing bars in the concrete and cause rusting. The migration is ionic and the chloride ions migrate to the steel. When the rust builds up the concrete will eventually crack and disintegrate.
