White Portland Cement is manufactured using the same process as gray Portland cement, with equivalent characteristics of strength, durability and workability. However, in order to achieve its consistently brilliant white color, only specialized raw materials and exacting process parameters must be used. The result is a versatile product that can enhance the beauty and quality of a wide variety of cement-based construction projects.
Many benefits are derived from white cement brightness and reflectivity. Due to its reflective properties, white cement in exterior surfaces can reduce air conditioning costs. When used in interior applications it can decrease the need for artificial lighting.
In addition to supplying a highly versatile, quality product, we support customers and end-users through knowledgeable customer services. We make it our business to work closely with customers, because their success is our success.
